Mental health concerns for the nation's van drivers

Mental health concerns for the nation's van drivers

Since 1949, Mental Health America (MHA) has led the observance of National Mental Health Month in May. This stigma can get in the way of seeking help or treatment.

It's as a report yesterday found that most Britons have had mental-ill health at some point in their lives. We need to treat them with kindness and dignity.

Right now, a "new mental health bill" is an entirely notional thing and one that would take years to create, especially with Brexit taking up parliamentary time.

"Half of mental health problems in adulthood begin before the age of 14, so investment in solutions for children and young people now and broader mental health education is crucial".

This does not mean that line managers and colleagues need to become experts in mental health issues, but it does mean helping them understand the signs of potential mental health issues, knowing when and how to involve HR, and, ideally, the support networks offered by the employer - employee assistance programmes, medical insurance, occupational health, wellbeing and mindfulness training, etc.

This May, the Columbiana County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board is raising awareness of these risky behaviors.

Trump also tried downplaying the missile launch that took place on Saturday, by calling it a "small missile launch". This was not a big missile. "This is something that we know we can not tolerate", McMaster said.


This stems from the fact that too many of us experience daily life as a battle.

A new mental health bill sounds sweeping and decisive to the layperson, but the current Mental Health Act for England and Wales is mainly concerned with a specific but contentious element of mental health treatment: the legal processes and safeguards for detaining and treating a person without their consent if they are judged to threaten their own or others' health or safety.

May said: "On my first day in Downing Street last July, I described shortfalls in mental health services as one of the burining injustices in our country". The event will convene Fortune 100 executives, leading academic experts in mental health, and representatives from national and worldwide health organizations. During fiscal year 2016, the agency served almost 9,500 people through a continuum of mental health and substance abuse services available for children and adults. And we don't need a special month to remind us of that.

Educational materials, tools, and references are available on the website to help people decide if a particular behavior is a "risky behavior".

This is particularly important as the nation grapples with health care policy and Republicans attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act - colloquially known as Obamacare. In truth, the study, diagnosis, and treatment of mental health deserve the kind of attention that is willingly afforded to cancer or other serious health problems.
