EMCOR UK holds inaugural Mental Health Awareness Week

  • Mental health NHS staff said staff shortages were to blame for the rise in violent incidents

This seems particularly apt to me, having spent two days last week chairing plenary sessions on stress and mental health in the workplace as part of our bi-annual EMEA Clinic.

World Mental Health Day is observed on October 10 every year.

The Qatar National Mental Health Strategy, launched in December 2013, identifies workplaces as one of the priority settings for effective mental health programs and raising awareness about mental health and wellbeing and reducing the likelihood of mental illness developing at work.

The law in South Africa states that an employee with a mental health condition has a constitutional right to equality, human dignity, reasonable accommodation and fair labour practice.

On Sept. 13, eight residents died and other residents were evacuated from the facility. Rick Scott issued emergency rules later that month.

Prof. Jagat Ram, Director, PGI opined that the work related stress is the biggest occupational health problem which leads to anxiety and depression among workers. "Our collaboration with Mind is part of a wider Wellbeing Programme we have developed to deliver a programme of information and activities created to help advance good mental health practices". Employer should make healthy work environment for their staff by developing policies and procedures to ensure harmonious relationships among each other.

If your organisation is just starting out on its journey in prioritising mental health more highly, there's plenty of advice and support available.

He added that this will allow employees to look at other options if they can not stand the stress.

People spend a large proportion of time at work, where experiences there factor into their overall wellbeing, the United Nations said on World Mental Health Day, noting that depression and anxiety disorders are common mental disorders that have an impact on our ability to work, and to work productively. Joy Harden Bradford is a licensed psychologist who publicly advocates for mental health awareness - particularly for Black girls and women, who happen to be among the most underserved populations with regard to mental health care despite research indicating they're disproportionately vulnerable to mental health issues. According to health secretary, Jeremy Hunt, this plan aims to treat an extra 1 million people by 2021, provide mental health services seven days a week, 24 hours a day and also integrate mental and physical health services.

Catalonia Waits With Bated Breath As Independence Decision Looms
It is home to 7.5 million people and accounts for about a fifth of Spain's economy. She said Catalonia, which borders France, already has "considerable autonomy".

The survey also shed light on the reasons why employees would be reluctant to discuss mental health in the work place, with one in five employees admitting they've witnessed phrases linked to mental health being used in a derogatory way. However, because of the assumptions of how these communities should be treated and the systematic oppression against these communities, it remains a challenge to give them the specific care and uplifting that they need.

Of course, the hard part is actually starting the mental health conversation.

She noted that such units should be given innovative names instead of "Mental Health Unit" which according to her, was associated with stigma. "In addition they could be losing out on the support structure offered by their employer, putting their career and relationship with colleagues at risk". "We are talking specifically about trying to break the kinds of myth that people generally hold around mental health".
