World Mental Health Day – 10th October 2019
Today is World Mental Health Day 2019 and here at Sotic, we’re committed to mental health well-being
In addition to flexible working and an open and supportive culture, our staff benefit from up to 3 mental health days each year.
This year we have been supporting the mental health charity Mind and at the end of September our team of Ed, Dilwyn, Paddy and Thinesh `Beat the Beacons` raising over £1000 to support the fabulous work that Mind does to to make sure no one has to face a mental health problem alone.
Beat the Beacons is a 22 mile endurance hike in the beautiful (but wet!) Brecon Beacons in Wales.
As well as fund raising, the team benefited from exercising spending time outside in the fresh air, both in the lead up to the day with a series of training hokes and on the day itself, which can reduce the risk of depression by 30%.
There’s still time to donate to our Just Giving page which will stay open until the end of October.
