World Mental Health Day

October 10th is World Mental Health day and an important opportunity for companies and employees to discuss the issues surrounding mental health in the work place.

According to Mind, mental health problems affect around one in four people every year and yet whilst people are comfortable discussing physical health; diets; exercise regimes; etc, there is still a stigma surrounding mental health.

Organisations such as Mind, the World Health Organisation and Time to Change provide resources and support for employers and employees.

Pulse can help obtain Life Insurance for sufferers of depression and anxiety, whilst our corporate travel policy does not exclude mental health conditions providing you are not travelling against medical advice.
