‘Here to Hear’ initiative to support employees for Mental Health Awareness Week 2023
Mental Health Awareness Week is a nationwide campaign which runs from 15th – 21st May 2023 every year. During this week, we are encouraged to think about and raise awareness of mental health in order to promote good mental health practices across our communities.
As a business, we believe in the importance of providing our employees with the necessary tools to support their mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, which can be seen throughout the numerous initiatives we have in place.
In recognition of the need for ongoing mental health support across the company, this year we will be hosting ‘Here to Hear’ sessions for all of our teams during Mental Health Awareness Week.
From those working on major infrastructure projects across the UK, to those based at our Nottingham HQ, teams will be invited to get together over breakfast for an opportunity to connect and be reminded about the various mental health initiatives we have available to support them.
For our Head of Compliance, Ben Feltham, Mental Health Awareness Week serves as an important reminder for employees that mental health support remains at the top of our company agenda – and ‘Here to Hear’ is a vital part of how our mental wellbeing programme continues to evolve in 2023.
“Mental health and wellbeing is something we take very seriously at McCann, which is why we have put in place a number of initiatives in recent years to ensure that all of our employees have access to dedicated support as and when they need it,”
“This year, through Here to Hear, we want to bring our teams together in an informal way to encourage open conversations with colleagues. Giving people the space to connect with one another can be invaluable, so we felt it was important to encourage this, while also signposting them towards the different initiatives and support networks that are available to them within their communities,”
“We’re proud of our caring culture, alongside the fact that we place as much importance on mental wellbeing as we do physical wellbeing.”Back to top
