SDC Trailers & MDF Engineering Raise £25,644 For Action Mental Health

During a 12-month partnership, employees at SDC Trailers in Toomebridge and MDF Engineering in Antrim raised £25,644 for Action Mental Health, a charitable organisation which works to enhance the quality of life and employability of people with mental health needs or learning disabilities.

Mountains To Climb

Through the partnership, SDC worked with the MensSana team to promote Action Mental Health’s “Healthy Me” and “Provoking Thought” programmes for 83 local primary and secondary schools, completing a total of 31 workshops with teachers and children. Since the pandemic hit, Action Mental Health has altered the programmes to offer sessions online. On 20 June the charity will hold its Slieve Donard trek as a virtual event, challenging participants to take 2,230 steps—the estimated equivalent of going up and down the 850-meter peak. SDC has signed on for a second year to support the charity’s work.

“Having seen the fantastic facilities and services that Action Mental Health offer, we were very keen to work with them for a second year,” says SDC Trailers President, Paul Bratton. “While the issue of mental health and well-being has come to the forefront during the pandemic, the services offered by Action Mental Health provide vital support to those affected. As well as fundraising, a number of our managers have been selected to participate in mental health awareness training online, which aims to give them the tools to recognise, understand and promote emotional wellbeing within the workplace.”
