Mind, one of the UK’s leading mental health charities, is trying to encourage everyone to talk about mental health with their TimetoTalk initiative, taking place on Thursday 7th February.
Lynch is recognising this important day by encouraging employees to talk more about mental health. On Thursday morning we will be arranging a morning session (9.30 -11.30am) with refreshments at three of our locations, namely our Head Office at Hemel as well as at our Northampton and Stanmore depots. Here staff will be offered the opportunity to come together and talk about their experiences in a supportive environment.
Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet many still find the subject too daunting to talk about. For people suffering with mental health problems, not being able to talk about it can be one of the worst parts of the illness. By getting people talking about mental health, we can break down stereotypes, improve relationships, aid recovery and take the stigma out of something that affects us all.
An important subject to all at Lynch, the management team is committed to raising awareness about mental health and ensuring the conversation around the issue continues to be highlighted, especially within the construction industry.
