Celebrating World Mental Health Day 2021

World Mental Health Day is on 10th October 2021, but we're doing an early celebration at 3P! 

At 3P, we recognise the importance of mental health and providing the right support to our employees. Therefore, we wanted to generate more awareness of its importance and help our employees gain a better understanding of the topic and useful strategies to implement.

On Wednesday 6th October, we were joined by Colette Thorns for a lunch and learn session about stress and anxiety.  Colette is a trained nurse who has set up her own business (Oyster Pearl Well-being). She has worked in the NHS for over 30 years and in wellbeing for the last 5 years before becoming a trained Health Coach recognised by the NHS institute of personalised care.

Before the session, Tom Bailey, our Managing Director, discussed the importance of mental health and the resources available at 3P  reminding staff that 'as a EO company we want  evetyone to be happy, healthy and resiliant for the business to be successful and for everyone to share in that success'. All 3P directors took part in creating our Mental Health and Wellbeing Policy to ensure the right resources for our staff were provided.

We hope that this educational session has helped educate our staff on the benefits of positive mental health, providing them with useful strategies to improve their mental health and contribute towards the creation of a positive wellbeing culture.

We have also decided to raise money for such a worthy cause, with staff taking part in a sponsored walk for Mind with donations being collected in the office. As a team, we hope to reach a step goal of 3 million steps in a month! This activity has been set out to not only generate money for such well-deserving charity but also encourage our staff to take up healthier habits that can benefit their own mental health.

About World Mental Health Day

The overall objective of World Mental Health Day is to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and to mobilize efforts in support of mental health.

This year’s theme is ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World’ announced by WFMH (World Federation Mental Health) President Dr Ingrid Daniels.

This theme highlights that access to mental health services remain unequal, with between 75% to 95% of people with mental disorders in low- and middle-income countries unable to access mental health services at all, with even high-income countries not having better services either.
