10th October is World Mental Health Day. Headtorch is running a campaign to get as many people as possible to celebrate their mental health at work – after all, 100% of us have mental health just as we have physical health.
Here are the 3 easy steps to get engaged and join in:
1. photograph you and or your colleagues with your hands in the air to signify that “I’m celebrating my mental health”
2. tell us how you create a mentally healthy workplace
3. send your photograph, your words and your website address to email@example.com
For the month leading to October 10th, your photograph and words will be added to this webpage and sent out across social media channels. The aim is to let it grow.
Be part of the growing movement … let everyone know what great things you are doing in your business to celebrate mental health.
Big thanks for celebrating with us:
