Happy #MentalHealthAwareness week!
The importance of mental health cannot be overstated. Apprentices sometimes face difficulty transitioning into the workplace, and they need our support.
But so, too, do full-time employees (some of whom have been working for decades) need an outlet to open up about mental health, if required.
I am absolutely delighted that both Kate Carter and I from iSales Academy are involved in this project as local volunteers. This project is a partnership between the Watford MP Dean Russell, the Watford & West Herts Chamber of Commerce, Wellspring Church and local mental health champion Cllr Rabi Martins (part of One Vision Well Being Initiative), we are collectively on a mission to train 1000 people in Mental Health First Aid Awareness.
Whatever business and industry you work in: please look after your mental health, and the mental health of others. How we interact with one another can have a huge impact on people’s wellbeing – and ultimately, the success of a company!
