Mindfulness week kicks off SAMH charity partnership

Switching off phones, powering down PCs, chatting over a plant based cold press juice – not quite the typical working day in many busy offices.

For a week in June, Coulters’ staff will focus on the benefits of taking small but positive steps to reduce stress, improve sleep and encourage positive open discussions, which are all key to improving mental health, and, at the same time, raise funds for an important charity.

The Coulters’ Mindfulness and Wellness Week is the start of a year-long partnership with SAMH, Scotland’s largest mental health charity, which will see a range of dedicated events highlighting and supporting the work the charity undertakes.

Established for over 90 years, SAMH is at the forefront of breaking down the stigma of mental health and has been instrumental in raising awareness as to how we can all achieve a better mental health balance.

Fiona Lewis, Corporate Partnerships Manager at SAMH said, “SAMH are proud to be Coulters charity partner for the year ahead! It’s fantastic that everyone at Coulters has decided to make mental health their cause. Poor mental health can have the most profound impact on our relationships, our work, our wellbeing and our quality of life. That’s why it is so important that SAMH is able to offer information, support and help to people across Scotland.

“Thank you to everyone at Coulters, we are really looking forward to a fantastic year of fundraising and awareness raising! Working together we will make a difference for Scotland’s mental health.”
