Mental health problems can affect anyone, any day of the year, so World Mental Health Day on 10th October is a great day to show support for better mental health and to encourage people to start looking after their own wellbeing.
At Designer Group, we believe that breaking the silence and stigma surrounding mental health is a crucial step towards providing a safe and healthy workplace environment. That’s why we’ve created our very own ‘Pop Quiz’ which highlights the staggering facts and figures surrounding mental health, particularly in the construction industry.
Our team will all be in with the chance of winning a subscription to ‘Headspace’, one of the world’s leading apps that strengthens both your mental and physical wellbeing. We’ve also distributed important, informative resources to all our people and issued out our ‘Top Tips’ for healthy remote working, to remind ourselves how to work from home and get the best out of our day, ourselves and our minds!
Moving forwards, our professionally trained DG Mental Health Champions will be collaborating with our HR & HSE departments to pioneer new initiatives to ensure our people stay mentally healthy.
