As we have done for many years, this week we have marked Mental Health Awareness Week at Speed with a series of activities aimed to bring our team together and remind everyone of the importance of taking time for personal wellbeing.
The theme this year has been about loneliness, something that the majority of people will have experienced or been touched by in the last couple of years, if not before.

We are committed to supporting our team’s wellbeing all year around, and have a range of support in place for the team as well as being part of the Mental Health at Work Commitment, which is backed by mental health charity Mind.
