Starting a conversation about mental health doesn’t have to be difficult​​

At høpp we have always been mindful that the right culture in the workplace contributes to a healthy environment for everyone. We’d go as far as to say that we have seen too often the negative effects of a culture of fear.

Høpp Directors Rachel and Mike ran the Cardiff Half Marathon 2019, raising sponsorship for Mind Cymru. Throughout 2020 we will continue raising money participating in a series of running, cycling and triathlon events, including (for Mike) the IRONMAN Tenby in September 2020, and then a few from our team will finish the year at the Cardiff Half.

We hope that our staff feel supported at work; it’s something we discuss, formally at reviews, and frequently as part of an open attitude. We probably don’t get it all right, and some companies don’t at all.

We enjoy the sporting activities; they are a great way to clear our heads and find our perspective. If you need some advice to get a better balance of support in your workplace, start your better mental health journey at Mind Cymru’s website.
