Mental health pop-up shop in Kettering

Mental health pop-up shop in Kettering”

Louise Aston, of Business in the Community, said: "Despite the increased prominence ofmental health as a workplace issue, it remains the elephant in the room that over a million people face serious repercussions for disclosing mental health issues to their employers".

A survey of over 3,000 people in work across the United Kingdom found that 15 per cent face dismissal, disciplinary action or demotion after saying they suffer from mental ill health.

YouGov surveyed over 3,000 people in work across the United Kingdom for the study, and found that three in five (60 per cent) employees have experienced mental health issues because of work.

I have been working with disadvantaged young people for over 40 years and I encourage them to connect with trusted family and friends to share their journey towards better mental health, and I am asking you to do the same.

Most people have suffered work-related mental health issues but often risk "serious repercussions" such as demotion or even dismissal if they raise the problem, a study reveals. And 91 per cent of mangers agree that what they do affects the wellbeing of their staff.

Despite this, fewer than a quarter (24%) of managers polled said they had received any training in mental health, and 35% reported not having any workplace facilities or services to support employee mental health and wellbeing. "Increase in knowledge and awareness of these issues will help in developing interventions to promote and protect mental health in the workplace", he said. Although we applaud the government for updating the Human Rights Act, we believe that educating employers and employees on the new contents of the Act will allow Bermuda's workforce see real change in the treatment of those who have a mental illness.

Information provided by the World Health Organisation (WHO) states that most of one's adult life is spent in the workplace and the experiences there are among the factors determining the overall well-being of people. Out of the nine equality and social issues asked about in the survey, people said they felt more comfortable talking about seven other issues, including race, age, physical health and religious beliefs.
