We’ve been supporting all our staff including furloughed staff, during lockdown by offering everyone the chance to complete the Ligtas online metal health awareness course. This course helps support staff with their mental health and wellbeing.

In this day and age mental health is widely recognised as a key area for individuals in both their work and their home lives. Along with the stigma around opening up about mental health an awareness of mental health issues can be unknown to many. The Mental Health Awareness Course we provided staff with access to covers the main types of mental ill health along with typical symptoms, relief and coping strategies.

It can be hard trying to balance home life, work life and emotional health, not to mention home schooling any children. So, any help we can offer alongside the more traditional methods like telephone calls, support line and emailing provides an extra resource to let staff know we care about their wellbeing.

If you’d like more information about this or any of our courses, why not call one of our friendly members of staff on 02922 800 000, or visit us online

We care about all our staff and appreciate all that they do for us, their what makes Ligtas the company it is today.
