Cooper Lomaz

An East Anglia recruitment firm has committed to “breaking the silence” around mental health with new staff training.

A group of 12 staff from Cooper Lomaz took part in the course to become mental health first aid champions.

Employees from the firm’s offices in Norwich, Bury St Edmunds and Colchester took part in the training session on October 4, led by Anita Malster of Anglian Training.

Through staff engagement, Cooper Lomaz identified mental health as a topic that workers across its offices wanted to focus on in 2018.

Kieran Ashton, a consultant from the Bury St Edmunds office, said “It’s been nice to have the opportunity to go on this course to learn about a subject which is close to my own heart.”

Simon Brown, managing director, said: “Statistics show that one in four people in the UK will experience mental illness each year, and here at Cooper Lomaz we plan to do something about it.”
