Staff Mental Health Champions - Ashton Vaughan

Ashton Vaughan - Construction Project Manager, 1-9 Old Park Hill

"I consider an individual’s mental health to be as important as their physical wellbeing. ‘Mental Health’ is the subject of unhelpful and derogatory labels which prevent many accessing much needed support and guidance from services, and each other. My intention is to normalise this conversation by seeking opportunities to positively and constructively challenge this stigma. I firmly believe each of us can directly influence our colleague’s mental health and wellbeing - both positively and negatively. Providing opportunities where colleagues can feel safe talking about their worries, stresses and concerns in the workplace, without judgement, is invaluable to personal wellbeing. "
