Mental Health Awareness Week takes place 18-24 May 2020; it aims to raise awareness of mental health issues and promote positive wellbeing. It provides an opportunity for you and your organisation to add mental health to the wider conversation.
Especially now that the nation is in lockdown with drastically limited freedoms, keeping yourself mentally healthy is critical. During the Mental Health Awareness Week, QCS have been sharing tips on how to stay positive for different groups.
Today, we are sharing with you a few examples of how QCS have been supporting the team, to keep everyone feeling positive and connected.
1.Weekly Social Events
We have our weekly social events that are designed and hosted by different teams. A great way to take a short break from work, have fun and stay connected!
You know how everyone loves a bit of chit chat at the company’s pantry? Our ‘coffee conversations’ program allows people to continue the pantry chat virtually!
3.Understanding and Trust
QCS trust their team to be outstanding. Sometimes working from home with a pet is not always a distraction!
Sometimes little things can make your day! QCS have sent everyone surprise Easter chocolates and origami to enjoy since the lockdown!
5.Cheers for Peers!
During Mental Health Awareness Week, everyone at QCS has been sending to each other lovely messages that show their gratitude and appreciation anonymously. A simple way to cheer everyone up!
We have invited different motivational speakers to share with the team the importance of mental wellbeing and ways to stay positive.
Being in lockdown doesn’t stop us from recognising the team’s and individual’s hard work at our virtual company meetings every week!
8.Sharing is Caring
QCS love to share, we have MS Team channels set up where we can share books, movies, podcast and music recommendations!
Although we are all working from home, it is important that our team can still go for a walk when it is sunny or spend time with the kids during the day.
10.Be there for each other
During this difficult time, emotional support is sometimes what needed the most. QCS as a big family, are always here to listen and help one another.
