Clearly mental health is something we are aware of on a daily basis as we lead and manage our teams.
It is important to acknowledge the relevance of being aware of everyone's mental health, particularly at a time of global pandemic.
Therefore it is positive to acknowledge Mental Health Awareness Week and this year's theme of Kindness.
Whilst we know we should be kind to people every day, this gives focus to the fact that we should do kind things for people even when it's difficult.
At work this may mean being nice to someone who frustrates you, telling your boss how much you appreciate them or taking time to listen to a colleague to find out how they are coping with the change in routine.
