Mental Health & Wellbeing
24th June 2021 by Sarah Butcher
This past year has shown, more than ever, how important it is for us to look after our own, and others’, wellbeing. In recognition of this, Laceys has now signed up to the ‘Mindful Employer Charter’. This demonstrates our commitment to working towards better mental health in the workplace. It will also enable us to access valuable information and support to improve our health and wellbeing offer. Watch this space.
Some of us have been working from home for a long time. Now’s a good opportunity to remind ourselves about how to take care of our health and wellbeing. Every member of staff now has access to a video course on IMPROVE about mental health awareness when working from home. Put the kettle on and take a break – this bite-sized course is just a 10 minute watch and is a useful reminder for office based staff too.
Think you’re doing OK but want to understand how to identify and recognise your personal stressors? Mental Health First Aid England (MHFA) explain how to do this simply and visually in their brief animation describing how to use your ‘Stress Container’.
