We’re proud to support the Mental Health Foundation on Mental Health Awareness Week, taking place between 18-24th May 2020. This year’s theme is kindness and being kind to everyone takes on more importance than ever in protecting our mental health during these unprecedented circumstances. Our Mental Health First Aiders want to share what being kind means to them.
HSE Operations Manager
“During the current climate, it’s vitally important to reach out and offer support to people who need it. This can be anything from a smile, to picking up the phone to check in on people and let them know that you’re here for them.
“A simple kind gesture can make the world of difference to someone who is struggling to balance different working patterns and life demands. Mental Health Awareness week will play a huge part in raising awareness of this.”
Payroll and HR Administrator
“It only takes a little act of kindness to make someone feel good. This can be a compliment, praise for a job well done or a quick phone call or video call to see how someone is doing. It’s important to remember to be kind to everyone and to ensure the wellbeing of people within our working environment.
“Mental Health Awareness Week provides a timely reminder to be kind to everyone.”
Client Operations Manager
“An act of kindness is to be inclusive and treat everyone how we would like to be treated ourselves. It’s important to always be friendly, generous and considerate. I always support my colleagues, friends and family around me and listen to any issues they may have without expecting anything back in return.
“Mental Health Awareness Week gives people the opportunity to share stories and experiences on how their acts of kindness have helped others.”
“A quick chat makes a huge difference to someone who may need emotional support. Say hi to a work colleague and ask them how they are. Say thank you to a team member who has helped you solve a problem and don’t forget to give positive feedback when they’ve done a great job.
“Showing your appreciation can go a long way in displaying kindness. Mental Health Awareness Week is fantastic and gives everyone the opportunity to reflect on how we can be kinder to others.”
