The Counselling Foundation held a Tea and Talk event at the Hatfield Galleria, offering local residents free tea and biscuits to highlight the value of having positive mental health conversations in the workplace. According to the national mental health charity, Mind 1 in 5 people take a day off work recovering from workplace stress.

Along with national charity Heads Together, local charity The Counselling Foundation celebrated World Mental Health day on Tuesday 10 October. The annual event raises awareness of mental health issues around the world to encourage positive conversations on mental health. The theme this year was mental health in the workplace.  Most adults spend a lot of time in the workplace, #WMHD17 this year highlights our experience in the workplace as being one of the key factors determining our overall wellbeing.


Angela Pask, Marketing Communications Officer said: “As a leading mental health charity we recognise the importance of wellbeing in the workplace and offer a number of services available for staff and managers to boost good mental health in the workplace.”

The Counselling Foundation offers charitable counselling where we ask clients to contribute what they can reasonably pay towards their weekly counselling sessions. The Foundation also provides BACP approved professional part-time counselling training services ranging from one-day workshops to a full five-year Advance Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling.

“We believe everyone should have someone to talk to, regardless of their income and invite anyone who may be experiencing stress, worry or any other concern to contact our Stevenage Centre for a completely confidential conversation”, Angela said.
