Mind Cymru manifesto briefing 1: employment and mental health
Mind Cymru today launches a crucial briefing on mental health and employment, building on the Mind Cymru manifesto published in October 2010. The briefing lays the foundation for Mind Cymru’s call to all political parties and the next Welsh Assembly Government to raise awareness of mental health issues among employers and employees.
In the wake of the recession, employment and worklessness continue to be major issues for the UK. Wales has been particularly badly hit by the economic downturn with many people becoming unemployed, or finding it hard to get into employment. The issue of mental health in the workplace is more important than ever.
