The automotive industry charity Ben is extending its digital, telephone and face-to-face mental health services. Ben says the extension will offer “more choice for individuals seeking support with mental health and wellbeing issues including stress, anxiety and depression.” The expansion responds to its latest insights about the needs of automotive industry people.
