Today is Time to Talk Day 2019.
1 in 4 of us have experienced Mental Health problems. These can range from grief to anxiety, depression and beyond.
The Tech sector can often be an isolating and high pressure place to be so here at Nine HQ we are embracing Time to Talk Day. With 76% of all UK suicides being male, we try our hardest to move away from the notion of “manning up”. We promote talking our problems through, personal or work.
Over a morning coffee with colleagues away from our desks we have chatted and lifted our spirits to ensure the whole team feels valued, supported and part of something. Sometimes just asking a colleague or friend if they are OK does a world of good.
Of course, our office dog Dougie certainly does a lot to brighten all of our moods – even when he barks!
