Elliott Scott HR UK working in partnership with Rethink Mental Illness
This December we are promoting mental health awareness and raising money to support the amazing work and initiatives of Rethink Mental Illness via an awareness campaign.
As a company who recruit solely for HR this is a pertinent workplace issue and we want to help end the stigma of having a mental illness and start conversations with businesses and HR professionals.
Through our campaign we aim to better inform our followers with regards to looking after their mental health, assisting their colleagues and fostering a positive workplace approach to mental health issues. Join in with us and participate in the conversation, sharing your experiences and workplace initiatives with us on our LinkedIn page.
Rethink Mental Illness help millions of people affected by mental illness by challenging attitudes and changing lives. They provide expert, accredited advice and information to everyone affected by mental health problems. They give people clear, relevant information on everything from treatment and care to benefits and employment rights and they have over 200 mental health services and 150 support groups across England.
They campaign nationally for policy change, and locally for the support people need. They have changed the law to improve life for millions of people with mental health problems and they are changing public attitudes through the Time to Change campaign, which they lead in partnership with Mind.
Rethink Mental Illness offer mental health training, suitable for workplaces with the aim of enabling people to feel more comfortable and confident when talking about mental health and know how best to respond when problems arise. Their mental health SOS guide offers practical advice on recognising the distress signals of someone affected by a mental illness and will help you know how and when to act. We will also be sharing other useful materials throughout our campaign.
