2019 Free Mental Health Resource Pack for Workplaces
World Mental Health Day is an opportunity for all of us to raise awareness of mental health issues and advocate against social stigma.
The day provides an opportunity for you to add to the wider conversation that will be occurring on social media, television and elsewhere. It’s a great opportunity to engage your organisation in the fantastic work you are already doing to address mental health stigma in the workplace and to introduce new and targeted activities anchored to the event.
The theme of this year’s event is suicide and suicide prevention. Every year close to 800,000 people globally take their own life and there are many more people who attempt suicide. Every suicide is a tragedy that affects families, communities and has long-lasting effects on the people left behind. It is the leading cause of death among young people aged 20-34 years in the UK and is the second leading cause of death among 15-29 year-olds globally.
World Mental Health Day is an opportune moment to address this issue, set out the importance of mental health to your organisation with your staff and to underpin this commitment with a range of activities to support learning on the subject. In support of World Mental Health Day, Time To Change has launched an activity pack for workplaces. The pack is full of useful activities and resources to help employers and organisations to raise awareness of mental health and address the stigma around suicide.
