STAFF and visitors to Civic Offices on Thursday 11 May were greeted by a public stall dedicated to providing advice and support on mental health.
To mark Mental Health Awareness Week (8 – 14 May), the council’s mental health forum, MIND and Inclusion Thurrock were on hand to raise awareness of mental health issues, and to promote services and support available locally.
Mental Health covers a wide range of issues including depression and anxiety, with one in four people likely to experience mental health issues at some time in their life.
On Tuesday 13 June between 11am and midday at Civic Offices, a presentation will be given by Remploy about their Access To Work Workplace Mental Health Support Service.
Staff and employers across the borough are invited to learn about the support available for staff which is funded through the Department for Work and Pensions.
