  • Time To Talk? Half Of Brits Don't Talk To Friends In Real Life Because Of Social Media

One in four people will experience a mental health problem each year and today's awareness day aims to get the nation talking and listening about mental health.

Yet while employer support for initiatives such at Time to Change is encouraging, our research indicates that organisations have some way to go when it comes to creating a workplace where mental health is openly discussed and prioritised.

Wrexham's Assembly Member is backing a nationwide campaign aimed at reducing the stigma and discrimination around mental health.

Northumbria Police are backing national Time to Talk Day which is about showing support for mental health issues.

McVitie's has joined forces with charity initiative Time to Change to promote conversations around mental health on Time to Talk Day (7 February 2019).

Councillor Janet Willis, Cabinet Member for Customers and Transformation, said: "Around 15% of those in work in England have symptoms of a mental health problem and people with a mental health condition are three times more likely to have a long term period of sickness". Furthermore, just one in five reported an improvement in workplace training to help manage their own mental health (20 percent) or to help them support colleagues dealing with mental health challenges (19 percent). The data also shows that mental health issues have overtaken all other areas of traditional concern for employees, including: work stress, relationships, and general health issues.

"It is surprising, not to mention a real shame, that such a large number of employees still feel there isn't enough mental health support available in the workplace, especially surprising as the topic has significantly increased in awareness in recent years". Every team in the WHL receives specific training on suicide prevention and each team is also linked to a CMHA Mental Health Coach, who helps provide support and mental health resources to individuals in need.

If you are anxious about your mental health, you may benefit from speaking to a professional. Working alongside Northumberland Tyne and Wear Foundation Trust, this sees a police officer and mental health nurse providing face-to-face care for those in crisis. "It is more important than ever that business leaders and decision makers break the culture of stigma and silence around mental health and start making it a management priority and ensuring that a range of support is available for those who need it". Which is better for them - and makes for a thriving and successful business.
