Sure introduces mental health drop-in sessions

Announcement made in Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental health drop-in sessions have been launched by local telecoms company Sure.

The announcement comes during Mental Health Awareness Week.

The sessions are being run by mental health first aiders and are set to take place weekly.

They're open to all employees, where they can "confidentially discuss any aspect of mental health with a qualified mental health first aider from Sure."

The company has 22 such staff in its workforce in the Channel Islands and Isle of Man, who can also signpost employees to the most relevant service for further advice.

HR director Lucienne De La Mare says "mental health problems can affect anyone at any time so we’ve introduced drop-in sessions to give our employees a safe space to discuss anything relating to mental health."
