GMB is campaigning to show that mental health matters in the workplace as much as anywhere and have long fought to break the stigma of Mental Ill Health and to raise awareness. Many people are unaware that they could be protected via the Equality Act 2010 under disability.
1 in 6 people experience a mental health issue at work – and due to increased pressures in the work place and cuts to funding for mental health services the challenges have become more acute. We want to increase understanding of mental health and encourage employers to put into practice workplace policies to tackle stigma, provide support and improve their workers’ wellbeing.
