As Managing Director of GC Employment, I’m incredibly proud of all the hard work that the team demonstrates on a daily basis. However, one thing which make me especially proud is just how much we do as an organisation to support vulnerable individuals who are battling with mental health problems – and who are struggling to find work as a result.
Today is World Mental Health Day, and the theme this year is ‘young people and mental health in a changing world’. To recognise this, we’re showcasing just some of the things we do here at the Growth Company to support our young learners who are on our traineeships, apprenticeships or study programmes.
