NJC employees are at the heart of NJC’s DNA and we value everyone’s health, safety and wellbeing. NJC recognises the importance of raising mental health awareness and for Mental Health Awareness week this year, we thought it was a good opportunity to share information and advice with our colleagues.
Good mental health is fundamental to thriving in life. It is the essence of who we are and how we experience the world. Yet, compared to physical health, so little is commonly known about mental ill health and how to prevent it.
Our newsletter shares the thinking behind the “It’s time to talk” campaign and gives advice on this year’s Mental Health Week theme, stress, and other areas. It also encourages all our colleagues and contacts to become involved by wearing a green ribbon. The green ribbon is the international symbol for mental health awareness, and wearing one helps to raise awareness and support good mental health for all. All proceeds from the sale of green ribbons in the UK goes to support the Mental Health Foundation’s work focused on finding and addressing the sources of mental health problems.
