As part of its ongoing campaign to promote awareness and break down the barriers surrounding mental health issues, the team at Brightstar Financial has spent time together to learn, raise awareness and funds for one of its supported charities for the year, Anxiety UK.

The focus for the day has been about raising the profile of mental health and helping to deal with stress, with the team at Brightstar engaging in a variety of activities.

Meanwhile, team members tested out their cooking skills to contribute to The Great British Brightstar Picnic with ticket sales for the picnic raising funds, as have donations for stress busting treatments such as head and hand massages, given by an on-site therapist in the Brightstar Wellbeing Room.

The firm created a raft of educational posters, leaflets and a social media campaign and team members have also been reminded about our corporate membership of Anxiety UK and the access that this gives them to helplines, support and services, wherever needed.

Through its Mental Health Action Plan, Brightstar continues to support Anxiety UK and Mind Basildon as their charities for the year and also to raise awareness about mental health issues both within and beyond the walls of Brightstar.
