13th – 17th May was Mental Health Awareness Week. Throughout the week we posted stories our staff have been reading surrounding Mental Health and wellbeing in the work place, and in your personal life.
On 15th May, the Professional Dentistry team held a Wellbeing Breakfast – a chance for our staff to pop in for some brain food, and to start a conversation around mental health.
