Creating a Culture of Mental Wellness: Navigating Workplace Mental Health in 2024

Welcome to Mental Health Awareness Week 2024! At Cybertill, we recognise the importance of mental health and well-being, both in the workplace and in our personal lives. As part of our commitment to supporting our team, we’re embracing this year’s theme of movement for mental health and encouraging everyone to find moments for movement in their daily routines.

Embracing Movement for Mental Health

Movement is essential for our mental well-being yet incorporating it into our daily lives can be challenging. This Mental Health Awareness Week, we’re encouraging our employees to find simple ways to move more, whether it’s going for a walk during lunch breaks, dancing to favourite tunes at home, or doing quick exercises while waiting for the kettle to boil.

Supporting Mental Health at Cybertill

At Cybertill, we prioritise the mental health of our team members by providing various support systems:

Mental Health First Aiders: We have dedicated mental health first aiders available to provide support whenever needed. Our first aiders have attended a St John Ambulance, first responder mental health course and are equipped to help our employees by supporting the emotional, physical, vocational, and financial wellbeing needs of employees.

Workplace Mental Health Training: All employees receive training in mental health first aid skills. We’ve also conducted comprehensive training sessions for Senior Management Team (SMT) Managers and team leaders, enhancing their understanding of mental health conditions and risk factors.

Mental Health Wellbeing Policy: We’ve developed a comprehensive policy to ensure that mental health remains a priority in our workplace culture.

Information Hub: Our mental health SharePoint page offers valuable resources and information on various health and wellbeing topics, including case studies and awareness campaigns.

Special Guest Speaker: Chris Kirkland

We’re excited to announce that Chris Kirkland, former Liverpool & England Goalkeeper, will be joining us for our bi-weekly Town Hall meeting on Friday, 17th May. Chris’ personal journey with mental health struggles makes him an inspirational advocate for raising awareness. From battling depression to finding his path to recovery, Chris’s story highlights the importance of speaking out and seeking help.

As we navigate Mental Health Awareness Week 2024 and beyond, let’s continue to prioritise mental health and support one another on our journeys. Together, we can break the stigma surrounding mental illness and create a more compassionate and understanding community and workplace.
