World Mental Health Day 2021

By Protolan

This Sunday 10 October is World Mental Health Day, an international day for global mental health education and awareness.

At Protolan we take the health and wellbeing of our team seriously. Our team works hard on some tough projects, and we want them to feel supported every step of the way. We totally support them to take the time to look after themselves, their families, and friends.

Addressing mental health is not easy for anyone and our aim is to make talking about mental health as important as discussing physical health. At some point in life, we will all, either directly or indirectly, be affected by mental health issues.

Protolan’s Mental Health First Aider, Dawn Wright said…

“As well as supporting the Team at Protolan I have also used my skills to support friends and family, especially during the pandemic. Whether it be through regular calls and video calls to organising quizzes and online get-togethers, keeping connected is massively important for mental and emotional wellbeing”.

A Mental Health First Aider in the workplace is the go-to person for anyone who is going through some form of mental health issue.

Each year, 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem of some kind in England. Mind’s ‘Do One Thing’ campaign aims to inspire people to make one small change or take one action to look after their mental health, whether it’s going for a walk, learning a new skill, taking steps to get support, or reaching out to someone else – everything helps!
