Cambridge’s leading independent firm of accountants, tax and business advisers joined the conversation and hosted internal events and speakers for Mental Health Awareness Week.
To raise awareness of the importance of mental wellbeing and destigmatise such an important topic, PEM staff joined meditation sessions run by Sarah Fitzgerald from local Cambridge charity Inner Space, heard from Gunilla de Robeck from Floatwell on how to create a positive mindset and enjoyed massages by Mark Swann from Forte Wellbeing throughout the week.
PEM shared numerous resources from the Mental Health Foundation and highlighted the support they currently provide for their staff, including their Mental Health First Aiders who are there to support staff throughout the year, with more being trained next month.
Staff were also given an extra “wellbeing hour” over the week where they could do something that made them feel good such as a spending time with family or friends, taking a long lunch break, or getting outside for a walk/bike ride.
On Mental Health Awareness Week at PEM, Managing Partner Warren Tilbury commented:
We’re delighted to have been involved in so many positive conversations and activities in the Mental Health Awareness Week. We recognise how important it is to focus on everyone’s wellbeing all year round.
