WELCOME TO OUR MONTHLY NEWSLETTER
Welcome to October’s edition of our monthly newsletter. This month we have celebrated two work anniversaries, team members have participated in charitable endeavours, and we recognised the significance of World Mental Health Day.
Firstly, we take great pleasure in recognising and acknowledging the employee of the month for September. This exceptional team member is passionate about his work and consistently displays an impressive positive attitude.
We're also proud to share that one of our team members’ relatives is raising money for The Little Princess Trust by cutting his hair and donating it to help with creating wigs for children who have lost their hair.
Additionally, we're looking forward to celebrating Fireworks night and would like to share some safety tips for a safe and enjoyable experience.
We hope you enjoy reading this edition of the Alert Health 24 Newsletter and wish you all the best for the month ahead.
EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH
A massive congratulations to September's Employee of the Month; Chris from the Worcestershire & Gloucestershire Branch.
April, our Worcestershire & Gloucestershire Branch Manager, nominated Chris for this award to say a huge thank you for all his hard work and to shout out how amazing he is.
April said ''I would like to nominate Chris for employee of the month. Since joining us in November last year, Chris has made a huge impact on our clients and is in very high demand. Chris has that thing you cannot teach; he is passionate, and this hasn’t gone unnoticed. Chris is also a pleasure to work with, has great communication and we feel very lucky to have him on our team!''
We are very proud of how fantastic Chris is and want to thank him for being such a wonderful and integral part of the Alert Health 24 team.
Thank you for being so amazing and positively impacting so many people's lives!
April recently met up with Chris to say a huge thank you and present him with his Employee of the Month certificate. He also received a voucher to spend on himself.
Thanks once again to Chris and congratulations on being Alert Health 24's September Employee of the Month!
WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY
The 10th of October marked World Mental Health Day, a topic that we are passionate about here at Alert Health 24. Mental health is a universal concern that knows no boundaries, and in 2023, it's more important than ever to prioritise our well-being.
At Alert Health 24, we are committed to fostering a culture of mental wellness, not just today, but every day.
Remember that it’s ok not to be ok. Seeking help through talking to someone is a sign of strength, not weakness.
Here are just a few helplines that can offer support…
Samaritans. To talk about anything that is troubling you, you can contact Samaritans 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You can call 116 123 (free from any phone)
SANEline. If you're experiencing a mental health problem or supporting someone else, you can call SANEline on 0300 304 7000 (4.30pm–10.30pm every day).
Shout. If you would prefer not to talk but want some mental health support, you can text SHOUT to 85258. Shout offers a confidential 24/7 text service providing support if you are in crisis and need immediate help.
We do also have a 24-hour helpline which all our staff have access to, your call will be answered by an experienced counsellor and all conversations are kept confidential. Please contact your local branch, and they will be more than happy to provide you with the telephone number to call.
Taking a moment for self-care can also make a huge difference to your wellbeing. Looking after yourself is so important especially when you look after others.
Please visit our website for self-care tips including a list of the benefits of putting yourself first.
