10th October, World Mental Health Day

mental health mattersToday is World Mental Health Day and GMB today, and every day fight for members mental health to be taken seriously in the workplace.

With many employers creating a culture of ‘must do more for less’ mental health does suffer and we should ensure that this issue is approached sensitively and with fairness.

GMB are campaigning for

  • Mental Health to be covered, in full, by the Equality Act
  • Wellbeing policies to be mandatory in workplaces
  • Work towards Mental Health awareness training for managers to be compulsory

Our Young members network are circulating information and a video which can be found on their Twitter and Facebook pages.
