Brown trucks. Brown uniforms. Brown noise? No, we’re not talking about honking our horns or revving our engines — we’re talking about the latest trend in mental health and music therapy!

Similar to its popular cousin white noise, #BrownNoise has picked up momentum in the past year within the mental health community on social media. And it definitely caught our attention – apart from the obvious color affinity in the name. 😉

Get listening: No one loves brown more than UPS, which is why we’re closing out Mental Health Awareness Month with our very own 10-hour brown noise soundtrack. Made entirely from the sounds of our trucks, planes and facilities, the lower frequency bass-like sounds can help you relax, enhance focus and improve sleep –  reminding us to take care of our mental health 365 days a year.

Taking care of each other year round: At UPS, our commitment to protecting the health and wellness of our people means that we make mental health resources available to every single employee, including:

  • Counseling services
  • Mental health, addiction and suicide prevention resources
  • Childcare, adoption and pregnancy support
  • Answers to budgeting, home buying and legal questions
  • School and college planning
  • 24/7 hotline support 

“We love seeing the spotlight on Mental Health Awareness Month, but taking care of mental health does not stop on May 31. We have a long-standing commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of UPSers,” said EVP, Chief Human Resources Officer and Chief Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Officer Darrell Ford. “Life can get heavy – let’s lighten the load for one another.”
