Ben, the not-for-profit organisation that partners with the automotive industry to provide support for life to its people and their families, has launched its new mental health campaign.
BEN want supporters to donate £1 or more to help colleagues in the automotive industry suffering from mental health challenges and the money will go back into providing relevant services for those who work in the industry, and their families.
The campaign has even received support from celebrities, Tom Chambers, known for his roles in Holby City, Casualty and Waterloo Road and Mike Brewer, presenter of Wheeler Dealers.
Tom Chambers said, “We need to raise awareness about mental health challenges as they have an impact on so many people.”
Mike Brewer added, “By taking part you’ll help raise money to support colleagues facing mental health challenges.”
The new campaign and fundraising will shine a light on how mental health can affect anyone, at any time, and is particularly relevant as new research shows that around 1 in 3 people experience mental health challenges at work.
The campaign is also part of Ben’s ongoing strategy to be an integral partner to the automotive industry supporting the industry by improving the health and wellbeing of the workforce, reducing absence, improving productivity and raising morale.
