Mental health concerns for the nation's van drivers

Mental Health Awareness week runs May 8 through May 14 in the United Kingdom, and You Me At Six vocalist Josh Franceschi has shared an important message on Twitter in order to raise awareness for those struggling with mental health issues.

Secondly, employees are often afraid to disclose their mental health issues for fear of the stigma which can be associated with them. There will be a relay where five people can complete a full marathon together.

More than half of the van drivers with poor mental health said that increased time pressures (52%) and increased workload (50%) are factors affecting their mental health, with one in three believing that job uncertainty is contributing to their poor mental health and 17% of delivery drivers adding that road congestion is impacting on their state of mind. We need to speak up early and educate people about risky behavior and its connection to mental illness-and do so in a compassionate, judgement-free way. I wrote in January about the concern that school leaders and teachers have long had about the mental health of children, which they see at first hand as an issue at least as important as children's physical health and has received a good deal of attention from governments, under pressure from Jamie Oliver and others. Sometimes people - especially young people - struggling with mental health concerns, develop habits and behaviors that increase the risk of developing mental illnesses, and these habits and behaviors could be signs of mental health problems themselves. That's the message coming from the Scottish Association for Mental Health as they launch a new campaign which has young people at its heart. We ask ourselves so many questions and begin to doubt our ability to be a mother, but we forget to take into consideration that every child is different and their rate of developing will also be different. 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.

The website goes on to explain that specialist CAMHS are NHS mental health services, comprising multidisciplinary teams with psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, occupational therapists and psychotherapists. Topics will include a gold standard for workplace mental health best practices, the business case for mental health, addressing provider shortages and access barriers, and tech-enabled approaches to brain health. "We have made great strides in the health of our bodies, we now need to achieve the same for the health of our minds". When we learn the facts we can help others to dispel false ideas about mental health conditions.
