Studies show that 1 in 4 people are impacted by mental health issues at some point in their lives.
As a business it is important that we can recognise the signs when someone is in trouble – to reach out and help our customers, communities and colleagues who may be dealing with mental health issues.
We are pleased to partner with Mind – the national mental health charity, as one of our three corporate charity partners for two years. We will be working closely with them to fundraise and raise awareness of mental health. Find out more about Mind.
We also work closely with the Samaritans and host annual ‘Have a brew' events, as well as promoting general health and wellbeing for our teams. But we want to do more, such as:
- Expanding our try-a-train programme that encourages people to feel confident travelling by train
- Fundraising for organisations and charities that support positive mental health
- Provide a platform for organisations to raise awareness of mental health and general health care causes
