Highway Traffic Management have been working with Birmingham Mind since 2018, with the mental health charity playing a significant part in the company’s mental health and wellbeing journey.

The effects of their involvement within the business has been shared within their latest Impact report, where they speak to Traffic Management Operative Bradley Robinson.

HTM first engaged with Birmingham Mind in 2018 when Greg Baldwin and Marcus Casey completed the Mental Health First Aid course. Fast forward to 2023, HTM have achieved their recent business objective to have 10% of the workforce trained as mental health first aiders, all of these employees having been trained by none other than Birmingham Mind and their Training Manager, Mike Jeffries.

“The consistency of using the same trainer and knowing the high standards delivered means all of our employees receive the same level of training,” said HSE Manager, Matt Higgs.

“With more Mental Health First Aiders visible within the business, we have been able to engage in more open conversations around mental health and encourage people to Talk More, supporting us in continuing to embed mental health and wellbeing within our culture.”

The Impact report focuses specifically on HTM Operative, Bradley Robinson, and how the business was able to support him to remain in work and rebuild his confidence to eventually return to his original role, going on to progress within the business, gaining new qualifications as a 12D LTMO and becoming a mental health first aider.
