Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week

According to the Mental Health Foundation, 1 in 7 people experiences mental health problems in the workplace with women twice as likely to suffer from mental health problems as men (20% vs 11%).

In the publishing industry, mental illness is the most common form of disability or impairment [25.5% of people with a disability or impairment reported having a mental health condition].

As employers, we have a duty of care to employees and colleagues. Here publishers share informed advice and practical support, as well as using the hashtag #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek to destigmatise the topic of mental illness.
