Today is World Mental Health day, which aims to raise awareness of mental health issues worldwide and to mobilise efforts to support mental health.
At Carillion Alawi, we are delivering a programme to raise awareness of mental health issues among our employees. This includes working in partnership with PDO and Al Harub Medical Center in Oman on the importance of mental health and well-being.
Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of, but stigma and bias shame us all. Stigma and self-stigma are some of the most significant barriers surrounding mental health. We will strive to break this conception of not being able to talk about mental health issues, and we commit to working with our colleagues to empower each of us to take care of our mental health and support others.
