A few news stories and articles all about mental health…
How many of us say ‘I’m fine!‘ when asked how we are? Is this cultural trend the reason we don’t talk about mental health enough? This article implores us to be more honest and find someone we can open up to.
This article is a really interesting read about how people access mental health services and their experiences. It’s inspired me to write my story, so watch this space.
I love this lady, America Ferrera who writes about battling a nasty inner voice. She says ‘I am whoever say I am‘ and that is definitely not Ugly Betty.
Steve Clark, CEO of WHSmith talks about mental health in the workplace. It’s great that all store managers have had Mental Health First Aid training and I really hope that has impacted positively on the health and happiness of employees. The telegraph also has another article on this theme, including stories of bankers and lawyers who have experienced mental health problems. Sir Ian Cheshire, chairman of Debenhams says ‘It’s good common sense to look after your people, but it is also a duty of care we have got. That makes for a better business‘. Let’s hope other businesses and workplaces think this way too.
