Umbrella.co.uk are supporting World Mental Health Day, on Thursday 10th October. We are also fundraising for Mind, the mental health charity, throughout October.

The  World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day on 10 October every year. This year's theme set by the  World Federation for Mental Health is suicide prevention.

Today Umbrella.co.uk are holding a Tea and Talk event to encourage colleagues to have a natter if something is the matter. Just by building social links and relationships, can make workplaces happier and a more mentally healthy community.

Talking is good for your mental health. It’s as simple as that. People who are more socially connected to family, friends, colleagues or their community are happier, physically healthier and live longer, with fewer mental health problems than people who are less well connected.

Staying connected is often more important than we realise. As a society and as individuals, we must urgently prioritise investing in building and maintaining good relationships and tackling the barriers to forming them. Simply spending quality time together is a good place to start.” https://www.mind.org.uk

Our Tea and Talk could help create a mentally healthier work community. Our fundraising will help Mind to conduct research and spread mental health messages further, helping to create a world with good mental health for all.

Not bad for a cup of tea and a natter.
