Mental Health Awareness Week 2019 is taking place across the UK from May 13th to 19th. This year’s focus is ‘how does body image affect mental health?’.
Mental health is one of the most important issues facing businesses today and poor body image impacted one in five people in the last year. Overall, more than a third of all UK adults will suffer from issues of poor body image at some point in their life.
Supporting our staff and promoting wellbeing
At FCS, we’re intent on making mental health wellbeing a priority for our business.
Indeed, our CEO highlighted this fact in a message to staff: “We are looking at how we can develop a better place to work and promote mental wellbeing across our business.
“In addition, we will be creating our Mental Wellbeing Charter, setting out how we will equip our managers and support our colleagues in managing mental wellbeing at work by appointing Wellbeing Champions and providing additional training to all our supervisors.”
As a sign of support for Mental Health Awareness Week, our Oxford office has organised dress down days this week. Voluntary contributions of £2 a day will be donated to the Mental Health Foundation. Meanwhile, our other offices will also be holding bake sales and games to raise money.
Finally, all of our teams will be wearing green ribbon badges throughout the week, highlighting their individual support for this important event.
At FCS, our people are the heart of our business and we are constantly striving for excellence. We are always looking for new people to join our ever-expanding team, from a new office in Halifax to a new office in a new country: Germany.
