Staff at Suffolk enterprise agency Menta have voted Suffolk Mind as their chosen charity for 2017.

Carole Thain of Suffolk Mind will be a guest at Menta’s Coffee Means Business networking event at Seckford Hall, Woodbridge on Tuesday, April 25, where she will explain aspects of the charity’s work designed to support homeworkers, freelancers, business owners and their staff.

Leanne Castle of Menta said: “Each year we choose to highlight and support a local charity and the team almost unanimously voted for Suffolk Mind.

“Over the coming months we’ll ensure the local business community are aware of how the stresses and strains of being your own boss and employing others can impact on them individually and what they can do mitigate this.”

Suffolk Mind provides advice on a range of subjects for businesses and managers, including help with stress management and practical tools and techniques to help people cope with stress and improve sleep patterns.

It also provides sessions for team leaders who have responsibility for supporting employees with mental ill health.
