Working from home, in theory, is great! No long commutes, tea and coffee readily available, being in for parcel deliveries; the positives are endless! For me personally, it allows me to support my partner in looking after our nearly 6 week old baby, BUT, is this the start of a slippery slope where we blur the lines of actually working from home, and are we at risk of being less productive, less responsive and more entangled in our everyday life that we can remove ourselves from when physically going into the office?

Signing the "Time to Change" Pledge; Mental Health at Newman Students' Union, My Journey and Forward Thinking!
I wanted to write this blog as General Manager of the Students' Union to demonstrate that if I can talk openly about Mental Health, then my staff and our students can too. Before I start to write about the "Time-to-Change" Pledge that was submitted today, I wanted to take time to say that this blog will be real, honest and contain my own personal struggles, so please, if anything, be kind.
