Enrych Proud to Support #MyWholeSelf Day

It has always been important that Enrych employees and volunteers feel supported in the workplace and supporting My Whole Self day on March 18th enabled them to further highlight the need to empower everyone to be comfortable bringing their whole self to work each day. We have all had to deal with a world-wide pandemic and faced with this degree of change and uncertainty has made it important that the Enrych workplace was a ‘mentally healthy’ one.

Sharon Patmore, an Occupational Psychologist and a trustee for Enrych said “It’s really important for everyone to feel comfortable being themselves and not feeling as though they have to leave a part of them at home each day”. Sharon added “there is so much help available now and it is important that everyone remembers to reach out to ask for help when they need it. It is also important that our employees understand there are lots of things they can do for themselves to maintain good mental health and wellbeing. At Enrych, we recognise that to be a happy human being we need three things: social interaction and connection, to be active and to have a purpose and if one of these is missing this is when our general mental health and wellbeing can begin to suffer”.

Enrych supports adults living with a disability and poor mental health and this is the main reason why Sharon decided to join the Board of Trustees. Sharon explained “I wanted to be part of a charity which realised that work needs to fit around life and I know how important it is that people feel supported at work so that they are comfortable talking about their mental health and wellbeing”.

My Whole Self Day is the campaign for workplace culture change from Mental Health First Aid England (MHFA). It is calling on organisations like Enrych to support their own and others wellbeing. The nation faces a mental health crisis in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and more people than ever will be looking for support. The campaign focuses on helping employers understand that workplaces are key to creating a society where everyone’s mental health matters.

Bev Cowley, Head of Business Development said “It is really important as an organisation that we stay connected and Enrych work hard to communicate with everyone to keep them in the loop so that they don’t become isolated” Bev added “This has been especially important as so many employees have been working from home and our PA’s are lone workers. We are conscious that we need to check in with our staff regularly to ensure we notice changes in their health and wellbeing and support anyone who is struggling”.
