Consortium Recruitment proudly attended the Think Mental Health Charity Ball, dedicated to raising awareness and funds for this critical issue that often remains unspoken – Men’s mental health.
The catalyst for Consortium Recruitment's involvement in this cause was due to a meeting between Dawn Parker and the founder of Think Mental Health, Paul Longley. Paul’s story and mission touched the heart of the Consortium Recruitment team, and they were keen to support the organisation.
"I saw what Paul Longley was doing to get mental health support out there with businesses and approached him for a walk & talk," shares Dawn. "I felt passionate about his story and asked him to talk at one of our Consortium Collaborate events. From this, Paul has secured several new clients who he now partners with. Paul also dedicates his time to Andy’s Man Club. I love what Andy's Man Club is about, the support it gives men who naturally don't talk and need help, and I know people it's helped personally."
Paul is a tireless advocate for men's mental health and has been championing the cause through innovative approaches, including his "walk & talk" campaign. This initiative encourages individuals to engage in open conversations about mental health while walking, breaking down the barriers that often prevent men from discussing their struggles.
Andy's Man Club offers a safe and supportive environment for men to share their thoughts, feelings, and struggles without fear of judgment. The organisation has significantly impacted men's mental health, saving lives and fostering a sense of belonging and community.
Consortium Recruitment's participation in this charitable event underscores their commitment to creating workplaces where men feel safe and encouraged to discuss their mental health challenges.
