MTS supports World Mental Health Day 10 October

Mental health in the workplace is the theme of this year’s World Mental Health Day on 10th October, supported by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

World Mental Health Day aims to raise awareness of key issues and mobilise efforts to support better mental health.

Good mental health is related to mental and psychological well-being. We spend a large proportion of our adult life at work and our experience of the workplace is an important factor in determining our overall wellbeing. A negative working environment can lead to physical and mental health problems, harmful use of substances or alcohol, absenteeism and lost productivity.

MTS is committed to promoting positive mental health and supporting employees with mental health disorders. We’re working to encourage everyone at MTS to speak openly about mental health and to step in if a colleague or friend is acting differently. We’ve signed the Time to Change Pledge to change the way we think and act about mental health at work. We want to help end the stigma often associated with mental health issues.

Depression and anxiety are common problems, with more than 300 million people globally suffering from depression and more than 260 million with anxiety disorders. Many people are living with both conditions. Helping people to cope with these conditions and to improve their mental health not only improves their health and wellbeing, it can also improve productivity at work too.

MTS has two trained Mental Health First Aiders at head office in Rochester, Kent. Further Mental Health First Aid training is in the pipeline for operations foremen and other interested employees later in 2017. Mental Health First Aiders are trained to recognise common mental health problems and provide immediate help and support, before professional help is obtained.

Read more about the work we’re doing to support good mental health in the workplace in the September issue of MTS News – check out pages 5 and 6.
