With the recent publication of the « Thriving at work » study, it felt like an appropriate time to write the sequel to my first post, which I’d been planning for a while.
In case you’ve not heard of the report, it was commissioned by Theresa May and highlighted the fact that around 300’000 people with a long term mental health problem lose their jobs each year. Not only that, but apparently the number of people forced to stop work as a result of mental health problems was 50% higher than those with physical health conditions.
You can read more about it in an article by the Guardian here, or the full report here.
This blog post has moved!
It’s gone to “That’s mental, a platform to talk freely about mental health“. You can find it here.
