Foothold launch mental wellbeing hub

To support improved mental wellbeing in their community, Foothold have launched a wellbeing hub in collaboration with Gattaca plc.

The hub was launched in response to growing calls for more mental health support, with calls for mental health support from Foothold’s community rising by over 40% in the last six months of 2020. The hub will give the engineering community access to clinically approved resources and techniques to support their mental wellbeing.

Foothold’s Support Services and Development manager Denice Houslin said: “Since the start of the pandemic, calls for our support have tripled. This is a trend reflected by the rest of the sector. But addressing and improving mental wellbeing in particular is important because our state of mind impacts our ability to handle pressure in other areas of life. We’re proud to be able to support the engineering community this way.”

Foothold wellbeing hub features clinically approved e-learning sessions on topics like anxiety, depression, work stress, substance abuse and others. In addition, it offers support on pandemic-related challenges like redundancy and isolation. The project is being funded through a collaboration with Gattaca PLC, an engineering and technology recruitment specialist and outsourced solutions provider.
