MW Solicitors are delighted to support “Brew Monday” on Monday 20th January 2020.
This event encourages us all to “reach out to people who might be feeling lonely”. As the organisers put it this is a day where “celebrit-teas join thousands of people coming together for a cuppa, a chat and to banish the winter blues”.
‘Brew Monday’ is an important awareness day to encourage people to put the kettle on and share a few minutes with those around us to have a conversation, make us feel better and manage the highs and lows of life. We are often unaware of who may benefit the most from getting a few things off their mind over a simple hot drink.
Mental Health and Personal Injury
The importance of mental health is now much better recognised in the law than even a few years’ ago. A claim for a recognised mental health condition which has come about as the result of an accident without a physical injury being sustained, is now established law.
Life Changing Injuries Affect Mental Health
When an accident happens it is sudden and unexpected as are the injuries that occur, sometimes life changing. Those affected will need extra assistance with their usual daily tasks, may require time off work or they may suffer changes to their body or mind that are difficult to digest. All of these issues can culminate in a person feeling stressed, frustrated or lonely.
Thankfully, we are able to assist our client’s in arranging assessment and treatment by medical experts for both mental and physical issues to try and put them back in the position they were in had the accident not occurred. We recognise the importance of being able to discuss concerns is vital not only for our client’s, but for us and our colleagues alike in a demanding working world.
Join us and get the kettle on. If you think we can help you or someone you love, let us know.
