Committed to reducing the stigma around mental health; she filmed colleagues speaking about their mental health struggles. She wanted people to see that anyone, including those you know, can be suffering and it is ok to talk about it. Using staff wellbeing survey, she looked at what she could do in the areas of improvement including raising financial awareness. To help, she organised The Charity for Civil Servants to run talks, drop-in sessions and pilot the ‘JaneBot’ money advice service. Knowing music is proven to alleviate stress, she secured funding for a Silent Disco during CMG appreciation week; improving staff wellbeing and encouraging people to have a little fun.
