What has housing got to do with mental health?

We want to hear from you this Mental Health Awareness Week.

The department's Defence People Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy, which focuses on preventative measures, was launched a year ago. Lack of awareness of the most severe mental health conditions mean the public are not alert to how serious mental illness can be.

Using the location of a web browser or mobile device, the Hub of Hope allows anyone, anywhere to find the nearest source of support for any mental health issue, from depression and anxiety to PTSD and suicidal thoughts, as well as providing a "talk now" button connecting users directly to the Samaritans. There are always going to be hard, stressful periods in people's professional or personal lives and as a major employer within the legal sector, we believe it is important that people know that help is available for them during these critical times and they can seek support during any period of ill health, be it physical or mental.

"I think a lot of it has to do with how we approach it, and how we talk about it". The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that, "Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the USA - 43.8 million - experiences mental illness in a given year".

"We are also heavily involved in the training and education of Norfolk and Norwich staff, including at induction, and we promote the mental health and wellbeing of their staff".

The collaborative, profession-wide project, invites all law firms and other organisations to get involved to learn from and share best practice. A good job where we feel secure and supported can boost our mental health.

Rapper TI Is Arrested on Public Drunkenness
The police report alleged that T.I. showed up at the entrance to the gated community where he lives drunk and looking for a fight. According to reports , the rapper realized he forgot his key card and asked a guard to let him in around the 4 am hour.

There isn't a more important issue in today's workplace than people's health and well-being, and we're seeing that numerous main risks to our health are now psychological. We believe mental and physical health are of equal importance, which is why we set ourselves a target to match the number of mental and physical first aiders in our organisation.

Dr Louise Barker, the CCG's clinical lead for mental health and learning disability services, said: "I'd like to thank Ian for sharing his story about his mental health struggles".

Just over four in ten respondents said some of their employees took time off work due to mental health problems.

It was fantastic to see so many members and others support the Lawscot Wellbeing launch in person on Monday, as well as the extensive activity on social media which has seen an enthusiastic response from people giving their backing to the initiative.

All of this work is underpinned by a significant financial commitment of £150 million over five years.

Mr Laybourn added: "People fear that opening up about their mental health will affect the way their colleagues or boss will perceive them - some even worry that this will have an impact on their career progression". Reducing stigma and raising awareness has been vital in making people less afraid to come forward when their mental health is deteriorating.
