Mental Health Priorities
At PLH Medical, our mission extends beyond providing the latest in innovation for the veterinary industry, it’s about fostering a workplace environment that prioritises the well-being of our team members. We’re incredibly proud to share our most recent milestone on the journey: our operations director Mark Ware, is currently undergoing an advanced diploma in counselling and psychotherapy certified with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. Recognising the crucial balance between a healthy work environment and individual well-being, Mark has also been an advocate for this and PLH Medical now offer free access to mental health counsellors to all staff and actively encourage use of these important services. We understand that the success of our company is intrinsically tied to the happiness and fulfilment of our team.
Mark has been truly instrumental in shaping the ethos of PLH Medical and his dedication goes beyond professional duty, a true testament to our company’s pledge to invest in our people, not just as employees but as individuals with multifaceted lives. By enhancing his understanding of counselling and psychotherapy, Mark aims to contribute even more effectively to the well-being of our team. The veterinary industry, as many know, is complicated, fast paced and can be stressful. This educational endeavour is just one facet of our broader mental health initiatives. PLH Medical actively supports mental health awareness and strives to create an open, supportive environment where team members feel comfortable discussing their well-being. Mental health is not a solo journey; it’s a collective responsibility. By openly discussing and supporting mental health initiatives, PLH Medical aims to break the stigma associated with mental health challenges in the workplace.
As we navigate the ever-evolving landscape of veterinary imaging, let’s remember that our greatest strength lies in the well-being of our team. Together, we’re not just advancing technology; we’re fostering a workplace where every individual is valued, heard, and supported.
Stay tuned as we delve deeper into the intersection of mental health and professional life, sharing insights, resources, and stories that emphasise the importance of a healthy, thriving work community. Because at PLH Medical, investing in people means investing in a brighter, more compassionate future.
