Mental Health Awareness Week 2020: Kindness

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week, the UK’s national week to raise awareness of mental health, running from 18-24th May. It is hosted by the Mental Health Foundation

This year, the theme for the week is kindness. 

Kindness is a fitting theme reflecting the circumstances of the Covid-19 crisis, as now more than ever, it’s important to look after your mental wellbeing and that of others while staying at home. 

At T4C, even our most technical policies are ultimately supported by a desire to make the workplace a kinder place. 

As our Director Dawn Coker explains… 

“Kindness is an interpersonal skill that we cherish across the business, being kind can manifest itself in many ways; thanking a colleague, asking how each other are and listening to the response. Helping each other all year round is key to a great team, it shouldn’t be only during Mental Health Week, it forms part of our values and expected behaviours here at T4C. Celebrating in another’s success and saying well done is encouraged across the business.” 

That’s why this Mental Health Awareness Week, we want to spread some kindness every day of the week to show our support. 

We’ll be sharing the small acts of kindness our colleagues have given or received; and will also be asking them what kindness means to them.

Keep a lookout on our social media platforms for daily updates.
