GroceryAid to provide innovative wellbeing support

GroceryAid, the national charity for the grocery industry, has expanded its mental health support offering by creating a new partnership with Rightsteps.

The evidence based online wellbeing support, hosted by Rightsteps, will assist a wide range of mind, body and behaviour topics including mental health.

Mandi Leonard, Welfare Director at GroceryAid commented; “Mental health is the number one health issue for employees in the UK and over the last five years rates of absence due common forms of mental health issues including anxiety and low mood (depression) have grown consistently year on year. In many businesses mental health has overtaken MSK and physical illness as the leading cause of absence within the workforce. We are pleased to make this accessible and user-friendly support available to the industry.”

Lord Adebowale, Chief Executive of Turning Point added on the partnership: “We are delighted that Rightsteps, part of the Turning Point group, have formed the partnership with GroceryAid enabling more people to get the support they need.”

The wellbeing portal takes a preventative approach, focussing on psycho-education and support to develop self-awareness and self-management in relation to health and wellbeing. The support will be available on-demand, providing evidence-based interventions which help colleagues develop personal resilience and self-management techniques to improve wellbeing.
