Great Minds

Changing attitudes towards mental health
Great Minds is the Employee Resource Group within BAE Systems Applied Intelligence for all things mental health.
Our vision is a working environment at Applied Intelligence where mental health is a non-issue.

Our mission is to create a working environment in which employees directly or indirectly affected by mental health can talk openly whilst feeling supported.

Since forming in 2017, Great Minds has led a change in attitudes towards mental health by making incremental changes across the Applied Intelligence business worldwide.

Amplify

We give employees a voice through regular blogs and podcasts that are published companywide to help break stigma.
 

Awareness

We use innovative ways to broadcast the importance of mental health including publishing a regular mental health newsletter to our members, talking at staff events or broadcasting mental health awareness days.
 

Support

We guide colleagues to the help and information available, for themselves or others. We act as a peer level stepping stone to the formal employee support channels, and have built a community of like-minded individuals to support one another across all of our offices.
 

Lobby

We collaborate with our executive sponsor and the Applied Intelligence Diversity and Inclusion team to suggest and implement initiatives that will benefit our employees; including the signing of the Time to Change pledge and implementing Mental Health First Aiders.
