  3. Celebrating World Mental Health Day

Every year the World Foundation of Mental Health celebrates World Mental Health Day on 10 October, and this year is no different.


The idea behind this day is to raise awareness of mental health and drive positive change for everyone’s mental health. The World Federation of Mental Health reminds us that it’s also a chance to talk about mental health, how we need to look after it, and how important it is to get help if you are struggling.


This year’s theme is mental health is a universal human right, which helps us to remember the significance mental health plays in our day-to-day lives – including in the workplace – and highlights why employers need to be aware of their role in support the mental health of their team.


As experts in HR, we speak with many businesses who are impacted in some way by this, and are looking to provide the support that their team need, so, in celebration of World Mental Health Day, we’ve pulled together some of our most popular blogs on the topic, to provide you with some guidance when managing your people.
