Mental Health Awareness Week

This year’s Mental Health Awareness week is all about movement, moving more for our mental health. Research consistently highlights the benefits of movement for mental health. Whether it’s a gentle stroll in the park or a calming yoga session, physical activity has the remarkable ability to uplift mood and reduce stress.

At Guardian Angels Carers, we believe in harnessing the power of movement to promote mental wellbeing for all. At the heart of our approach is our Wellbeing Initiative Programme, which embodies our dedication to supporting mental health. Through initiatives such as mental health awareness training and access to counselling services, we aim to create a nurturing environment where individuals feel valued and supported.

Education is key to understanding and empathy around mental health issues. That’s why we provide comprehensive mental health awareness training to all our Wellbeing Ambassadors. By equipping them with knowledge and skills, we strive to foster a culture of compassion and acceptance. In addition to training, our Wellbeing Initiative Programme offers a variety of activities to promote mental health, from outdoor walking meetings to deskercise, these activities provide opportunities for relaxation and self-care. Incorporating movement activities into our daily work lives can alleviate stress, boost mood, and enhance focus.

Here are just a few ideas to incorporate movement into the workplace:

  • Organise walking meetings.
  • Implement stretch breaks or short exercise sessions to combat sedentary behaviour and boost energy levels.
  • Create walking challenges or step competitions to motivate colleagues to increase their daily physical activity levels.

This Mental Health Awareness Week reinforces our dedication to mental health awareness. By standing together in our commitment to supporting one another’s wellbeing, we create an environment where every team member feels valued and empowered to prioritise their mental health wellbeing.

Let’s continue to champion mental health awareness, ensuring that the workplace remains a place where care extends beyond our clients to each other!
