Zurich International back Mental Health Awareness Week

Councillor Louise Upton, Cabinet Member for Healthy Oxford, Oxford City Council, said: "This week is Mental Health Awareness Week, a time to promote the range of support available".

"Our new coronavirus mental health advice covers all of these different workplace situations and offers practical advice on how workers, managers and bosses can support their colleagues during this hard time".

Not being permitted to work from home and financial issues due to furloughing are among the top COVID-19-related concerns cited by legal professionals reaching out to mental health charity LawCare.

He said acts of kindness could begin with recognising one's own simple accomplishments in these challenging times. It thanks everyone who has shown kindness and helped those in need in these hard times.

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, LawCare is encouraging legal professionals to share moments in their career when someone showed them kindness.

The charity recommended government departments apply a measurable, values-based "kindness test" to current and new policies to ensure they are informed by kindness, equality, dignity and respect.

He said: "This week I would like you to focus on acts of kindness".

As most of the UK's cybersecurity workforce now sits at home isolated while carrying out an already pressurised job, there is every possibility that this could be affecting their mental health. Kindness connects us - it creates a sense of belonging and a sense of optimism.

"The pandemic is an opportunity to do that".

Take care of your own mental health tooThe Island's mental health services provider, Isle of Wight NHS Trust, agrees with the message and has added that while showing kindness to others, people should keep in mind to take care of their own mental health as well. Even if this is just regular check-ins - whether by phone or video call - everything you do as an employer makes a difference. Employers need to take workplace wellbeing virtual - meeting the needs of all employees, wherever they are and whatever environment they are in.

"As the industry now works out how best to return to work it is vital that we put both physical and mental wellbeing considerations front and center of our plans for recovery. As nurses, we understand first-hand the importance of this and have formal support processes in place for our own nurses".
