Monday 10th October is World Mental Health Day. A time to raise awareness of Mental Health Issues and of the support available. Working Well Trust was founded with the goal of supporting those whose have faced mental health challenges find meaningful employment on their terms. With the theme of this year’s World Mental Health Day being “Make mental health & well-being for all a global priority” we asked our Staff a simple question. “How can we make Mental Health a priority in the workplace?” and here’s what they had to say.

Rebecca who is both the Kingston Team Lead & our Wellbeing Lead believes “Regular Open Conversations about Staff Wellbeing” can help

Clem an Employment Support Worker for the Kingston team thinks “Regular Mental Health talks and Advice during meetings” can help

Kim our Business Manager says to “Normalise talking about what gives us stresses/anxieties at work as well as what helps and gives hope” is key

Lisa our Operations Director says you have to Create a Supportive Environment

Emily the Team Lead for the Tower Hamlets team sees “Open Conversations” as a vital part of making Mental Health a priority

Nat an Employment Specialist for the Tower Hamlets team believes if you “Value all Voices”

Finally Karen the lead of our Upskill service puts it best. Simply “Be Nice.”
