Mental Health Awareness Week: Stress

15th May 2018

In a survey undertaken by the Mental Health Foundation in 2018, 74% of people surveyed stated that they had felt under stress at some point in the last year, leading to feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope.

Although stress itself is not defined as a mental health illness or problem, it can lead to anxiety, depression, and in extreme cases, self-harm or suicide.

To ensure Hughes and Salvidge promote a mentally healthy workplace and , our Mental Health Awareness Ambassador, Lori Noble, works with our Directors, Senior Management and Site Managers in supporting our employees to reduce the triggers for stress, provide guidance and information, promote an open-door policy for discussions of this nature, and signpost employees to the correct outside organisations, should this be required.

Our employees also undertake training on how to notice the possibility of mental health issues, stress, feelings of being overwhelmed or unable to cope, in their team members and colleagues. Lori runs regular sessions, embedded within our quarterly Supervisors’ meetings, to encourage conversation and awareness with our teams.
