Mind Over Matter: Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week

This month includes Mental Health Awareness Week. A topic that has, rightly so, pushed its way up the agenda for many industry businesses and associations.

In this feature we talk to some of our industry businesses about the support and initiatives they run for their employees.

Included in the feature is Sir John Timpson who has opened up about his own struggles in the past. He said: “Most people with stress and depression find it difficult to admit they have a problem. Many are reluctant to talk to a doctor and almost all find it hard to start a critical conversation with their boss. I also started to realise how threatening some work places can feel. Uncaring colleagues and hard-hearted executives who stick to the rules can create a work place that is too hostile for fragile colleagues to cope.” His book ‘A guide to mental health at work’ is used in many workplaces and training courses.

Mental Health Awareness Week runs from 13-19 May 2024. The theme this year is ‘Movement: Moving more for our mental health’. Being active is important for our mental health. But so many of us struggle to get enough exercise, for many reasons. This year’s Mental Health Awareness Week will look to find ways to help people to find moments for movement in their daily routines – however big or small.
