Join us at The Luton Mall | Friday 18 May 2018 | 10am – 3pm

Mental Health Awareness Week takes place between 14-20 May 2018 and the theme this year is stress.

The causes of stress are different for all of us, but the most common is work-related.  This is an opportunity for the Foundation to share how we can help organisations with our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) which is designed to help reduce workplace stress and improve wellbeing through the provision of short term counselling for employees.

We’ll mark the event with a stand at The Mall in Luton, Melson’s Square, where we can have a presence in our local community and share the counselling and counselling training services that we offer.

We’re delighted Ben Salmons from Break the Stigma, ‘Let’s be Open’ about mental health campaign will be joining us. The campaign was started by Ben after suffering with his own mental health and is determined to ensure people know it’s OK to ask for help if they need it.

The public are encouraged to write a message on the board below, with a photo which is shared on social media, to help end the stigma of ill mental health.

On the day we’ll be asking the Luton community to share their messages on Ben’s board :–

How do you cope with Stress at work and also signs to look out for in a work colleague if they’re struggling with stress.
