Mental Health Awareness Week

This year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is focused on stress.

We've launched a new workplace initiative called Wellbeing in the City: two interactive online tools which bring Samaritans’ expertise into the workplace, giving businesses a practical route to a healthier workforce and individuals the skills to manage their own emotional health.

Stress: are we coping?

Stress can affect many of us and can even become a way of life. Our aim is to help people who are struggling with stress, before they reach crisis point. We can give you the tools to identify emotional distress in yourself and in others, and the courage to intervene or seek help.

Work pressures often contribute to people feeling stressed and unable to cope. Our mission is to build happier, healthier workplaces. We do this by working closely with organisations, to deliver bespoke training that gives staff vital skills in listening and wellbeing. 

This Mental Health Awareness Week, we have launched a new workplace initiative called Wellbeing in the City. Together with the Lord Mayor’s Appeal, we have created two interactive online tools which bring Samaritans’ expertise into the workplace and gives businesses a practical route to a healthier workforce.

“I found this online training so valuable. It helps by giving practical tips about listening and giving support compassionately.” 
Adam Spreadbury, senior manager, Bank of England
