World Mental Health Day

Tuesday 10 October 2017 is World Mental Health Day and this year’s theme is Workplace Wellbeing, raising awareness with employers about actions they can take to promote mental health in the workplace. Mental health problems at work are common. At least one in six workers is experiencing common mental health problems, including anxiety and depression.

Mind have some great tips for employees about staying well at work including:

  • Reclaiming your lunch break
  • Using a to-do list
  • Organising a group activity with colleagues
  • Listening to music to eliminate distractions, encourage relaxation and reduce anxiety.
  • Getting a better work-life balance
  • Asking for help


Our one day training course on Mental Health & Children’s Services: Working Together with Families explores the way parental mental health difficulties can impact on the lives of children and young people, and considers how we can work together to create better outcomes for families. The next session is on Wednesday 29 November 2017 and places can be booked through the Brighton & Hove Learning Gateway.
