MCIA supports Hats on 4 Ben


The automotive charity Ben is inviting the industry to take part in its first ever national fundraising day to raise money and awareness to tackle mental health issues.

It’s a simple concept, which just involves you wearing a hat to work for the day on November 10th and paying a pound.

Ben is hoping this will alert those working in the automotive industry that they have access to free and confidential help regarding mental health problems.

Jools Tait, Business Development Director at Ben says taking part in Hats On 4 Mental Health Day will also give employers “the tools they need to support their staff, point them in the right direction if they need additional help, and understand the wide-reaching implications that mental health challenges can have on an individual.”  

All funds raised from the day will support Ben’s free and confidential services.  

You can get more details on these from the website, and read a case study about someone helped by Ben here.
