There’s a lot of things we can have too much of in life – but we can never have too much kindness. Join us today by expressing kindness to yourself and those around you!
The partnership aims to empower Poundland colleagues to find the mental health help and information they need to support themselves, friends, and loved ones. Mental Health UK is also delivering Mental Health Champions training to a number of Poundland colleagues to empower teams to support positive change in culture and practice in relation to mental health in their workplace.
The partnership will complement Poundland’s existing Wellness programme, which includes access to counselling, wellness coaching and a 24/7 confidential helpline delivered by retailTRUST.
– Barry Williams, Managing Director at Poundland
We all have mental health, but the stats say one in four of us experience a mental health problem, and that means many of our colleagues will too. I feel a responsibility to do something about that and provide the support and guidance colleagues need – whether in a store, distribution network or our support offices. My ambition is to make our business an example of best practice in the retail industry for mental health – that’s part of making Poundland a truly great place to work.
– Brian Dow, Chief Executive at Mental Health UK
It’s easy to forget that many retail staff are on their own version of the front-line and without them right now performing their own heroics many of us would be facing a far more difficult time in what are already unprecedented circumstances.
So that’s why we’re absolutely thrilled to be playing our part in partnering with Poundland, working together to support colleagues’ mental health when they need it most.
Mental Health UK brings together more than 40 years of expertise from four national mental health charities to provide advice, information and support.
Living with a mental health condition can affect many aspects of daily life, from your physical health to your home, your work and ability to manage money. Every year we provide thousands of people across the UK with practical advice and information to help understand and manage their mental health.
