56 percent of the public say they have experienced a mental health issue – but 90 percent still feel there is a taboo around mental health. This needs to change.
Together, we are calling for the health and safety regulations around first aid to include mental health as well as physical health.
Where’s Your Head At? is a six week campaign launching on 14th May 2018 to change health and safety law so it protects mental health in the same way as physical health. We’re teaming up with Bauer Media and Natasha Devon MBE, mental health campaigner and Youth MHFA instructor, to launch a petition asking the government to change the law.
The petition is backed by Leader of the Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn MP and former Minister for Health and Social Care, Norman Lamb MP.
If the campaign is successful, it will mean that every workplace must provide Mental Health First Aid as well as physical first aid.
With a little help from some celebrity friends, we are calling on everyone to sign the petition so that we can bring equality to mental and physical health in all workplaces.
We all have mental health, so let’s change the law to reflect this.
