RehabWorks will be taking part in this year’s national Mental Health Awareness Week.
The theme for the Mental Health Foundation’s campaign this year event is physical activity and exercise. They hope to highlight the impact they have on our mental health.
Andy Holdcroft, RehabWorks CEO, said: “Investing in, and supporting our employees is an absolute priority for RehabWorks, so taking part in the national Mental Health Awareness Week is a great opportunity for us to continue to do this.”
As part of the RehabWorks Health and Wellbeing strategy, employees are encouraged to go on a lunchtime walk once a week, and Head Office at Bury St Edmunds run theirs on a Tuesday.
The activities will support this by promoting the benefits, including better mental health, lifting your mood, reducing stress and dealing with negative emotions.
Information will be displayed around the head office in Bury St Edmunds and nine other regional centres to encourage activities to continue after the week, which is running from May 13th to 19th.
Staff will be encouraged to commit to their own physical activity by incorporating more activity in their daily lives – such as lunchtime walks, using stairs instead of lifts, walking or cycling to work and going to the gym.
