Price Bailey recognises Mental Health Awareness Week 2024

Price Bailey sheds light on the steps they’ve taken to improve their mental health and wellbeing provisions, as they recognise Mental Health Awareness Week.

As a firm with a “people first” approach, Price Bailey is committed to its workforce. In 2023, the organisation was recognised as one of the best places to work in the UK by Best Companies, alongside being in the top 20 best employers in the Apprenticeships Top 100 Employers list.

The firm is committed to raising awareness and understanding of the importance of mental health, with 23 of its staff now trained ambassadors, equipped with the tools needed to support anyone who might be struggling.

Kelly Flack, HR Manager at Price Bailey comments: “All of our ambassadors are trained via Mental Health First Aider England and undertake the Mental Health First Aiders Training. They have also all been invited to attend additional Suicide Prevention training via Samaritans this year.

“Our ambassadors have different experiences and backgrounds which lend themselves to the role. These individuals support anyone who may need help with their wellbeing including mental health, and are trained to also recognise the symptoms and behaviours of wellbeing concerns.”

Kelly continues: “Our ambassadors then meet to discuss current topics and key issues and subsequently this helps Price Bailey to provide the right support, the right resources, at the right time.”

In addition to this, the firm offers several other mental health and wellbeing resources, including:

  • two employee assistance programmes, which offer a confidential service with 24/7 access and counselling services, which is also available to family members,
  • a stress and mental wellbeing at work policy, which sets out the measures in place to support wellbeing,
  • a wellbeing toolkit which offers tips for effectively managing wellbeing,
  • private medical care for assistant manager and above,
  • time off for medical appointments,
  • access to occupational health services which can provide support and assessments including helping individuals return to work after ill health
  • reasonable adjustments and specialist equipment
  • ICAEW members can also access support via CABA which provides well-being and mental health support and can also help family members in certain circumstances

Mental Health Awareness Week 2024 takes place from the 13th to 19th May, and this year’s theme is “Movement: Moving more for our mental health”.

According to the Mental Health Foundation: 

“One of the most important things you can do to help protect your mental health is regular movement. Moving more can increase your energy, reduce stress and anxiety, and boost your self-esteem”.
