Mental Health Awareness Month at WPA

04 November 2022

In October WPA celebrated Mental Health Month, helping to raise awareness of this important topic with the aim of motivating people to get talking and get rid of the stigma around it.

Throughout the month, WPA sign-posted resources from multiple mental health charities that help support individuals who may be suffering. Internally, staff mindfulness sessions were held at head office from Mindfulness Coach, Karen Atkinson, to help facilitate employee wellbeing.

Mind in Somerset was the chosen charity for the month, with the WPA Foundation matching the amount donated by staff.

Although Mental Health Month has finished, the awareness on this important topic should not and will not stop there.
