Mental Health Awareness Week 2018

Posted on

It is Mental Health Awareness week and here at Guiding Minds we are focused on taking action to improve mental wellbeing in the workplace. This is why we are supporting the Business in the Community Mental Health at Work 2018 survey, in conjunction with Mercer.  Please share your experiences of Mental Health in the workplace by completing the survey www.thewellbeingsurvey.org.uk, all responses are anonymous.

In its third year, the Mental Health at Work survey is the biggest of its kind, and is supported by the national partners Mind, Mental Health First Aid, Mental Health at Work, CIPD, ILM and The Work Foundation.

Everyone has mental health in the same way as everyone has physical health. Mental ill-health is one of the biggest public health challenges facing society and research shows that one in six workers are experiencing stress, depression or anxiety at any one time. Business in the Community want to take action to find out how employers are supporting people in order to develop recommendations for business to improve.
