Mental health problems are common.
An estimated 1 in 6 people experienced a common mental health problem in the past week.
1 in 6.8 people are experiencing mental health problems in the workplace. That's about 7,500 health and care staff in southeast London.
We want to make sure that every staff have the right support and tools to help manage the challenges that come with mental ill health.
It's important that we recognise lived experience of mental health challenges as an asset, and challenge any stigma and discrimination. Mental health difficulties are our body's normal reaction to abnormal and difficult circumstances. Having experienced mental health challenges, one may be better equipped in understanding service user experiences and needs.
