Mental Health Awareness Week
In the past week, 1 in 6 adults have experienced a common mental health problem such as anxiety or depression.
This saddening statistic is why events such as Mental Health Awareness Week are so important.
This year, falling between the 13th and 19th May, Institutes including the Mental Health Foundation and Mind are carrying out the yearly campaign to tackle the ongoing issue of mental health. The Mental Health Foundation state that Mental health problems can affect anyone, at any time, which is why it’s vital to spread awareness.
It is thought that over 300,000 people a year leave their workplace due to mental health problems. Alongside this, 15.4 million sick days in 2017/8 were due to mental health issues.

That is why our Account Manager, Tina Doherty, recently attended a Mental Health First Aid Course to provide support to those struggling in the workplace. To read the full article, click here.
