Specialist Works Installs Mental Health Expert

The Specialist Works Group has named psychotherapist Isabella Barrand as its first-ever Mental Health and Wellbeing Specialist. This new role for the group is a first for the independent media agency sector, claims an agency spokesperson.

Her role is entirely focused and measured on improving employee wellbeing. It was created in response to the mental health crisis exacerbated by Covid-19. Barrand will offer in-house counselling to all employees, shape the group’s mental health and wellbeing strategy and provide company-wide resilience training.

These confidential counselling services will sit alongside existing support available to staff, including trained mental health first-aid responders and an assistance program.
