Are you wearing yellow for World Mental Health Day?

The NDML team are looking bolder and brighter than usual today. We’re wearing yellow in support of Mind this World Mental Health Day.

What is World Mental Health Day?

World Mental Health Day is about raising awareness and reflecting on our own wellbeing. Mental health is just as important as physical health. That’s why the team here attend mindfulness classes, have access to free counselling sessions and a wellbeing app. We talk, and we know our colleagues will listen.

How to support your team’s mental health

We know not all businesses can put a comprehensive employee assistance programme together, whether due to time or budget restraints. But even little steps such as implementing an open door policy or encouraging team members to take regular breaks and talk to one another can be helpful.

Does shift work impact your mental health?

Many late night venues and nightclubs employ shift workers. Night shifts and irregular working patterns can have an impact on both physical and mental health. There’s a great publication from Health and Safety Executive about managing the risks associated with shift work. Why not pass on key information to your employees?
