Mental Health and Well-being: In focus

Mental health and wellbeing

The lockdown measures put in place as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic has restricted human interaction and lead to some work-life imbalances. That's why we’ve built this permanent hub to give you and your team the resources you need to help combat the mental health and well-being related issues you’re facing right now.

Stress Awareness Month (April)

April is Stress Awareness month.

To help you and your employees, we've compiled a range of useful resources here including practical advice and special offers from our trusted business partner Howden, a multi award winning employee benefits consultancy. 

Certified coach and CBT practitioner Michelle Flynn talks about what stress is and why it's a problem to have chronic stress. In this video we learn how stress is a way through which our body tells us we're in danger and therefore protects us. Find out more about stress in this video.
