Fiercely Supporting Mental Wellbeing and Raising Awareness on Mental Health Week

Mental Health Awareness Week provides us with a crucial opportunity to recognise the significance of mental wellbeing in our lives. It serves as a reminder that mental health is an essential aspect of our overall well-being. As an organisation we do not underestimate the unwavering commitment required to supporting the recognition and understanding of mental health of our colleagues. Through various initiatives, we will ensure the best possible support for our employees, we will highlight the importance of mental wellbeing in the workplace and beyond. 

Mental wellbeing is not merely the absence of mental illness; it encompasses a person's emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act, shaping our ability to cope with stress, make decisions, and form relationships. Promoting mental wellbeing is crucial to maintaining a healthy and fulfilling life. 

Recognising the significance of mental wellbeing, we have taken proactive steps to prioritise the mental health of our employees. By fostering an environment that supports mental wellbeing, the company acknowledges that a healthy workforce leads to increased productivity, reduced absenteeism, and improved overall job satisfaction. 

The NWH Group recognises that mental health concerns can affect anyone, regardless of their role or position within the organisation. As a result, the company has implemented several initiatives to promote mental health awareness and ensure the best possible support for its employees. 

Mental Health Training and Education: The NWH Group is committed to educating its workforce about mental health issues, reducing stigma, and promoting open conversations. The company organises regular training sessions and workshops to enhance employees' understanding of mental health, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to identify and support colleagues who may be struggling. 

Mental Health First Aiders: The NWH Group have several trained Mental Health First aiders to ensure that all of our colleagues have access to a listening ear when this is needed the most.  

Wellbeing Initiatives: The NWH Group actively promotes overall employee wellbeing through various initiatives. These include providing resources for stress management and self-care in our open resources bank which is shared with all of our colleagues. By creating a supportive environment, the company encourages its employees to prioritise their mental health and take steps to maintain their well-being. 

Communication and Support Networks: Open communication is vital in fostering a mentally healthy workplace. The NWH Group encourages dialogue about mental health by creating channels for employees to share their experiences, concerns, and suggestions. Additionally, the company facilitates the formation of support networks, allowing employees to connect with and support each other during challenging times.
