The employees of Projex Building Solutions will be actively supporting the World Mental Health Day’s campaign to focus on suicide prevention with their own unique initiative.
Given the quirky name “Ten:Ten Good Buddy” staff at Projex are encouraged to pick up a phone and kick-start a conversation with someone who has been affected by suicide at some point in their lives; indeed any friend or colleague who may be going through difficult times in their life and are displaying symptoms of mental health issues.
To support our employees to carry out this initiative, Projex now have three fully trained Mental Health First Aiders who can advise and support our staff on all aspects of recognising symptoms in others as well as themselves, and where further professional help can be found.
The aim is to reach out to those who may need help and get them talking – that is always the first step on the road to recovery.
The “Ten:Ten Good Buddy” initiative begins quite aptly tomorrow, the 10th of the 10th.
