Celebrating Mental Health Excellence In The Workplace

The Not A Red Card Awards celebrate organisations and individuals that have developed and implemented best practices around addressing mental health in the workplace.

In its inaugural year, the Not A Red Card Awards received a fantastic number of high quality entries from a broad range of applicants. The judging panel bought together an outstanding group of mental health experts from across sport and business, from Olympic Gold Medallist, Helen Richardson-Walsh to former professional footballer and PFA Chairman, Clarke Carlisle, from Sue Baker, Global Director of Time to Change to Antony Brown, CEO and Founder CBT Clinics.  They praised the standard of entries and had some very tough decisions to make.

The winners were announced at our second Not A Red Card Forum at the Oval on 30 October 2018. A full list of winners can be found below:
