At Belmont Healthcare, we believe that taking care of our staff is crucial for providing exceptional care to our residents.
Mental Health Awareness Week is an essential annual event that aims to raise awareness and promote understanding of mental health challenges. This year, the Mental Health Foundation has chosen the theme #ToHelpMyAnxiety, focusing on anxiety management and support.
Belmont Healthcare, a dedicated provider of compassionate care, is actively participating in the week-long campaign by offering various mindful activities to their team members. By encouraging self-care and providing coping strategies, Belmont Healthcare is fostering a culture of wellbeing and mental health support within their organisation.
Belmont Healthcare understands the power of physical relaxation and its positive impact on mental wellbeing. Prioritising mental health Belmont Healthcare are providing their teams with chair massages, yoga and meditation sessions during the week as an effective mindfulness and stress-relief technique.
The soothing touch of massage helps reduce muscle tension, ease anxiety, and promote relaxation. Yoga and meditation are ancient practices known for their ability to calm the mind, reduce stress, and improve overall mental health. These short, rejuvenating sessions serve as a reminder to take a break, breathe and prioritise self-care.
Team members are encouraged to participate in yoga and meditation sessions, either in person or through virtual platforms. By engaging in these practices, individuals can cultivate mindfulness, enhance their emotional wellbeing, and develop a greater sense of self-awareness.
Open communication and seeking support are vital for mental health. Team members are encouraged to find someone to talk to, whether it be a trusted colleague, supervisor, a company wellbeing coordinator, or mental health professional. By creating a supportive atmosphere, Belmont Healthcare ensures that team members feel comfortable discussing their feelings and seeking assistance when needed. Regular check-ins on emotional wellbeing help identify any underlying issues and facilitate early intervention.
In the fast-paced and demanding World of Adult Social Care it is easy for individuals to neglect their own wellbeing. BelmontHealthcare recognises the importance of self-care and encourages all team members to prioritise themselves during Mental Health Awareness Week and beyond.
By emphasising the importance of eating regularly, getting enough sleep, and being kind to oneself and others, Belmont Healthcare creates an environment that promotes self-nurturing and self-compassion.
Mental Health Awareness Week serves as a vital reminder of the significance of mental health in our daily lives. Belmont Healthcare's participation in this campaign highlights their commitment to the wellbeing of their team members. Creating a nurturing environment that promotes mental health and supports anxiety management, the company hopes to set an example for organisations everywhere to prioritise mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
