Top 5 ways to promote positive mental health at work

"Anyone who cares about poverty, education, social cohesion or economic progress should work to improve mental health, putting the vast knowledge we have on promotion, prevention and care into action", he added.

Alison Parmar, FSB development manager, said: "One in four of us will suffer some sort of mental health issue". By working together, we can make a real difference to our workplaces, and to the experiences of our colleagues at work. But we know mental health problems are very common. The tips below are universal principles created to support a diverse range of people across a range of workplaces.

Half of all mental illness begin by the age of 14 years, but most cases go undetected and untreated, with serious long-term consequences for mental health, it said.

But others criticised the government's record on mental health.

If you are at school or college, mental health care may be arranged for you.

"The Mental Health Unit is cognizant of the importance of educating persons about mental health, and continues to promote good mental health in school settings as well as through monthly outreach sessions".

It was first celebrated in 1992 at the initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health, a global mental health organization with members and contacts in more than 150 countries.

A combination of issues is usually the biggest contributors to mental health among young people, says Chambers. The country only spends 2.35 per cent of their budget on mental health.

The service is an "absolutely essential component" of any mental health service and needs to be set up in Gibraltar, as soon as possible.

There is also a need for greater recognition of mental health pressures faced by cancer patients, from feeling isolated to enduring the exhaustion of treatments such as chemotherapy. Tragic, because the rising rates of suicide in countries around the world underscore the pervasiveness of mental illnesses.

"We need to get the Mental Health Fund up and running and conclude the conversation of having the NHIS cover mental healthcare in the nation", Dr Appau said. Similarly, the introduction of conflict and time management support can also transform someone's aptitude towards dealing with stressful obstacles. That's why we're supporting Natasha Devon's campaign to have the Health and Safety at Work Act updated so that all employers have an obligation to provide mental health first aiders - regardless of whether workplaces are unionised or not - and independent of the size of the business.
