Research shows that one in four people will experience a mental health problem in any given year.
As a major employer across the regions we operate, it is imperative that we create awareness of poor mental health among colleagues so that they are supported in difficult times.
Across bus, we are training a mental health first aider in every one of our UK and Irish bus companies. Go-Ahead London is additionally training managers and colleagues on mental health awareness in conjunction with Transport for London.
We are constantly working to tackle the taboos surrounding mental health by ensuring it is discussed openly. The health, wellbeing and safety of our colleagues is our top priority and we will endeavour to direct colleagues to resources and support available.
We have chosen five of the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals as our areas of focus. Our commitment to colleagues' mental health demonstrates our commitment to Goal 3 (Good Health and Well-Being).
