Posted on

October​​ ​​10​​ ​​2017,​​ ​​12​​ ​​noon​​ ​​to​​ ​​2​​ ​​pm
Camden​​ ​​Town​​ ​​Hall,​​ ​​Judd​​ ​​Street,​​ ​​WC1H​​ ​​9JE

You​ ​are​ ​warmly​ ​invited​ ​to​ ​our​ ​celebration​ ​of​ ​World​ ​Mental​ ​Health​ ​Day​ ​on October​ ​10.

The​ ​theme​ ​of​ ​the​ ​day​ ​this​ ​year​ ​is​ ​Mental​ ​Health​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Workplace.​ ​​ ​As​ ​a​ ​leading provider​ ​of​ ​workplace​ ​mental​ ​health​ ​support,​ ​Jobs​ ​in​ ​Mind​ ​are​ ​encouraging our​ ​partners,​ ​friends​ ​and​ ​local​ ​employers​ ​to​ ​join​ ​us​ ​in​ ​thinking​ ​further​ ​about how​ ​to​ ​support​ ​people​ ​who​ ​are​ ​experiencing​ ​mental​ ​health​ ​problems​ ​within the​ ​workplace.

Every​ ​organisation​ ​in​ ​Britain​ ​is​ ​affected​ ​by​ ​mental​ ​health​ ​problems​ ​in​ ​the workforce.​ ​At​ ​any​ ​one​ ​time,​ ​one​ ​worker​ ​in​ ​six​ ​will​ ​experience​ ​depression, anxiety​ ​or​ ​problems​ ​relating​ ​to​ ​stress.

The​ ​total​ ​cost​ ​to​ ​employers​ ​of​ ​mental​ ​health​ ​problems​ ​among​ ​their​ ​staff​ ​is estimated​ ​at​ ​nearly​ ​£26​ ​billion​ ​each​ ​year.​ ​Across​ ​the​ ​UK,​ ​mental​ ​ill​ ​health​ ​is​ ​the leading​ ​cause​ ​of​ ​sickness​ ​absence,​ ​costing​ ​an​ ​average​ ​of​ ​£1,035​ ​per​ ​employee per​ ​year.

More​ ​than​ ​ever​ ​employers​ ​need​ ​to​ ​ensure​ ​that​ ​the​ ​wellbeing​ ​of​ ​their​ ​staff​ ​is​ ​a priority.​ ​Our​ ​celebration​ ​will​ ​provide​ ​an​ ​opportunity​ ​to​ ​meet​ ​with​ ​other employers​ ​to​ ​share​ ​good​ ​practice,​ ​hear​ ​from​ ​people​ ​who​ ​have​ ​lived​ ​experience of​ ​mental​ ​health​ ​problems​ ​and​ ​to​ ​learn​ ​more​ ​about​ ​good​ ​workplace​ ​practices in​ ​relation​ ​to​ ​mental​ ​health.

The​ ​agenda​ ​is​ ​as​ ​follows:
