Following on from the support and guidance provided during last week’s Mental Health Awareness Week, StoneHawk has announced the release of free and confidential online meetings as part of the company’s ongoing support for the UK jewellery trade.

Trade professionals will now have access to a free thirty-minute confidential conversation with StoneHawk’s mental health consultant, Daniel Darwin.

During this time people can ask any questions about security, mental health and wellbeing.


StoneHawk managing director, Simon Wilson, shares: “Supporting staff for the effects of trauma experienced as the result of crime has always been an integral part of our business. During lockdown it became apparent at an early stage that our resources could be put to good use to support staff and businesses that work in the jewellery, watch, high-end retail sectors; the feedback has been superb.

“As business owners and staff return to work, we are aware that their focus on security and their anxieties will become increasingly more pertinent. Education for all staff around mental health awareness is a key strategy to develop a good culture in the workplace and that will help identify suitable staff to become Mental Health First Aiders. This forms part of a longer-term approach strategy to support employees in the workplace, and to sign post them to relevant support services to promote a positive culture towards Mental Health.’

Daniel Darwin, mental health consultant at StoneHawk, is becoming a familiar face as he continues to offer support through webinars, articles and during the online meetings held by the industry’s buying groups and associations.

Apart from the well-known #StopSmashandGrabs armed robbery prevention training, StoneHawk has the resources to deliver a wide range of training courses on security and mental health, and will be releasing more detail of these very soon.
