We know that 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem in any given year. But our independent research shows that the estimated quarter of a million people who work and volunteer in the emergency services are even more at risk of experiencing a mental health problem than the general population, but are less likely to get support.
Mind has been awarded LIBOR funding to deliver the Blue Light Programme for a third year, to provide mental health support for emergency services staff and volunteers from police, fire, ambulance and search and rescue services across England and in Wales for the first time.
Make sure you receive regular email updates about the Blue Light Programme and the support on offer. It's the best way to find out what's happening, when and how you can get involved.
