LumiraDx Care Solutions Celebrate World Mental Health Day

Date: 23 Oct 2018

LumiraDx put on a healthy lunch picnic for over 50 employees with food provided by the Hungry Horsebox Co. to celebrate World Mental Health Day which took place on the 10 October 2018. World Mental Health Day was established in 1992 by the World Federation for Mental Health to promote education and awareness of mental health and wellbeing.

Helen Dunstan, one of their Mental Health First Aiders at LumiraDx commented:
“We wanted to mark World Mental Health Day with a special lunch for staff as a part of a larger, more holistic approach we have to workplace wellbeing. Employees found it to be a positive experience and really appreciated being able to take time out of their day to enjoy the sunshine, great food and the chance to have a chat.”

Raising awareness of World Mental Health Day is just one of the ways the company is focussing on mental health in the workplace. Other initiatives include on-site mental health first-aiders, access to a life coach and mindfulness courses. The company is also part of the Healthy Cornwall’s Healthy Workplace Awards scheme and currently holds a silver award for their workplace health.

Employee Feedback

"I am lucky to work for an organisation whose management has whole-heartedly supported me throughout the process of obtaining the Healthy Workplace Awards.  The Directors have never said ‘no’ and it is great to know that my employer is interested in everyone’s well-being at work.  Not only have they approved my initiatives but they have also led by example and joined in some of them too.  They have committed, what are for us, scarce resources and agreed more flexible working policies as well as offering support to staff who may struggle with work or with personal problems through solid employment policies and management techniques"- Louise Mallas, YMCA Cornwall
