"Although mental health is often talked about at AWP, Time to Talk Day felt like a good opportunity to sit down with coffee and cake and chat with colleagues. We practiced a number of mindfulness and grounding exercises which could be easily used in the workplace and dispelled a few mental health myths with a quiz at the end. It might only have been 30 minutes of our day, but the impact felt really positive."

Time to Talk Day 2022

09/02/22

We had a great session last week marking Time to Talk Day, both in the office and virtually through Teams.

Coffee and cake was enjoyed along with practical tips for reducing stress in the workplace and whilst we continue to work remotely. We did some simple grounding / breathing exercises and held a quiz on mental health to dispel some of the common myths. Time to Talk Day this year tied in nicely with us appointing Luisa as our new Mental Health First Aider for the office, and sets rolling a quarterly series of Wellbeing Sessions which will be held across the office to bring focus to our mental health.
