Mental health is the level of psychological well-being or an absence of mental illness. It is the state of someone who is "functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioral adjustment
As everyone is aware, the last six months have been challenging for many of us. As a company we are trying to promote wellbeing and mental health by organising various events to try and get as many of the team together whether it’s face to face, respecting social distance, or virtually.
Recently we got the team together in various locations: Cambridge, Chester, Stratford, Windsor, Harrogate, and virtually for a team-building event. Respecting social distance, everyone had fun and actually got to see some of their colleagues face to face.
Our CEO, Steve Watmough said ‘It was a big reminder of how important human interaction is to promote positive wellbeing. Not what we would have normally planned for an away day but a real success in the circumstances. Thanks all for embracing the opportunity’.
We want to try and build on the last event and keep the momentum going, so our next event will be a virtual Tea & Talk via Zoom on 2nd November. We thought at the same time, it would be a great time, to raise money for the Mental Health Foundation. All staff involved will be donating to the charity and Mason Advisory will match donations.
If you’d like to donate to the Mental Health Foundation, here’s the link to our JustGiving Page.
As the saying goes ‘It’s good to talk’, it’s also great for wellbeing and mental health, which is something we are passionate about. Together as a company, we can support each through this pandemic with the help of family, friends, and work colleagues.
