Mental health awareness

 

Public and political awareness of mental health has risen significantly in recent years, as has society’s understanding of the moral and financial imperatives to improve mental wellbeing. This trend is notable in workplaces because work has been identified as the biggest cause of stress in people’s lives. Employee mental health has come under increasing focus as more and more organisations take this issue seriously. Businesses recognise that employees who feel valued and supported to spend meaningful time at work are not only more likely to have higher wellbeing levels, but also tend to perform better in their roles.

Mental Health Awareness

Mental Health affects so many people every day and, without knowing the signs to identify early stages of these issues, is becoming an ever increasing problem, as is being able to deal with those problems and get the right support when needed. Anyone who watches Coronation Street will have been impressed by their sensitive handling of a tragic suicide storyline - but will also have been deeply shocked by the event, given the lack of obvious signs of mental illness.
