in honour of raising awareness for world mental health day, we asked some of our colleagues what they do to practice mindfulness; the ability to be in the present moment and just be aware.
for us, raising awareness around mental health means telling as many people as we can that it is always okay to ask for help. with 3 qualified mental health first aid responders across the company, we recognise the need for support within the workplace – which should always be a safe space for our employees.
let’s advocate for change and end the stigma by normalising talking about things and overall, just being kind. ❤️
if you or anyone around you is struggling, please never be afraid to ask for or offer help. here is a start if you don’t know where to look:
