Our Commitment to Mental Health

Published Date: 15th September 2023

At MRC, our commitment to addressing the issue of mental health is an important one. The escalation in the number of individuals struggling with mental health issues is a matter of concern. Consequently, we have dedicated ourselves to providing comprehensive support for our team and their mental wellbeing.

This couldn’t have come at a better time as, in line with recent findings highlighted in The Guardian’s article titled “Millions of UK Parents Grappling with Mental Health“, 61% of respondents participating in a Unicef UK survey have expressed notable concerns regarding their mental well-being. This concern is compounded by the continued rise in the cost of living; 68% of parents dealing with the added challenge of a lack of affordable and high-quality childcare. These parents also believe that the government’s efforts in supporting individuals raising young children fall short of their expectations.

24/7 Support
We recognise the importance of being there for our team. To this end we offer, through our healthcare plan, a safe space where they can find support to improve their mental health and wellbeing via an online community. They’ll have access to a range of tools, such as assessments, courses and journals, as well as the online community to connect anonymously with people who they can relate to.

Talking Therapy
If self-care options aren’t right for the team member, or they would prefer to talk to a therapist, they can refer themselves to talking therapy. Talking therapies are available for all employees over the age of 18. All of our employees are initially covered for a minimum of 8 sessions of talking therapy.

If you or anyone you know is struggling with mental health, please reach out to The Samaritans here. If you’re interested in finding out more about MRC, please visit our About Us page here.
