From Monday 12 May to 16 May 2014, the week of Mental Health Awareness, ID Medical Mental Health, a specialist sub-division of the leading Milton Keynes based healthcare recruiter ID Medical, raised a phenomenal total of £1,015.05 through the co-ordination of an entire week of creative and feel-good factor fundraising events to support the work of the Mental Health Foundation.

The Mental Health Foundation, the UK's leading mental health research, policy and service improvement charity, chose this year's campaign theme as anxiety - one of the most common mental health problems in almost every country in the world.

As the company continues to experience increased demand from NHS Trusts and continues to grow in size, ID Medical understands its employees’ wellbeing is conducive to delivering a premier level service. Led by its mental health division, ID Medical’s week-long fundraising activities aimed to motivate all staff, comprising of massages, a cake sale, an employee auction, art competitions and a raffle prize draw finale.

Harjit Nandha, ID Medical's mental health division manager comments, "Mental Health Awareness Week is a key date in our diary and we are so proud to be involved in such a fantastic campaign. This year we aimed to beat last year's total of £146 and by raising awareness of mental health issues across the company, we achieved this with flying colours, making this our most successful fundraising event to date.

Our division supplies mental health professionals to over 75% NHS Mental Health Trusts in the UK so this campaign couldn't mean more to us. We’ve also extended our fundraising efforts, inviting our candidates and clients to donate to the Mental Health Foundation through our dedicated JustGiving page so that together we will make a difference."
