Today Threshold Housing Link left Excalibur Communications staff bursting with goodness through their latest juicy social enterprise to raise awareness on World Mental Health Day.

Having recently launched their newest social enterprise Health and Wellness Juices, Threshold Housing Link volunteers teamed up with Excalibur and Swindon Link staff for a morning of freshly pressed juices.

As part of the charity's latest initiative to tackle homelessness, Health and Wellbeing Juices are looking to expand the scheme on a commercial level to encourage local businesses to join Threshold's 'Businesses Against Homelessness' campaign. To show support, and raise awareness, on World Mental Health Day, Threshold's managing director, Michael Keenan, and volunteers made their latest 'tri-colour' and 'wellness' juice recipes to "share the gift of good health" with Excalibur and Swindon Link employees.

Michael Keenan said: "A whole host of research shows, which is no surprise, that micronutrients makes the brain better equipped to be able to deal with the traumas of life.

"We know that by incorporating micronutrients into our diet it increases our wellbeing, which is why we're here today - to support World Mental Health Day and share the gift of good health with our friends and supporters.

"Health and Wellness Juice volunteers were juicing with all the staff in the offices of Excalibur Communications Ltd and Swindon Link. A really fun and healthy morning was had by all in the workplace of such strong Business's Against Homelessness.

"The tri-colour health and wellness juices were made fresh on site for all staff, ensuring everyone had a nutritious power boost to better serve their customers - boosting staff morale, positive mental health and productivity in the workplace."
