With Mental Health Awareness Week in full flow, Menzies is pledging its commitment to opening
up the conversation around mental health.
Perhaps like no other, this year has tested the mental health of us all and has enabled more
open acknowledgment that mental ill health is something that affects many of us and our
families, friends and colleagues.
Between 10-14 May, Menzies is running a varied programme for employees to raise awareness
of how we can look after our mental health. Amongst other things we are running a virtual
training session on how to ‘spot the signs’ of mental ill health, celebrating the benefits of
exercise with a DanceFit session delivered by one of our very own colleagues and producing a
video reflecting on lessons learned through the pandemic and how these can be turned to
positive use in the future.
All the while we have remembered to embrace this year’s theme of ‘Nature’, in concert with our
recent gift to all staff of a financial contribution to purchase a plant for their indoor or outdoor
This week also provides an opportunity to celebrate and to show our gratitude for the brilliant
work that our dedicated Better Place to Work team and Mental Health First Aiders are doing to
support employee wellbeing at Menzies.
