I feel grateful to be able to promote the employment opportunities for those currently experiencing mental health issues.
Mental health continues to be a key priority, and with an average of 1 in 4 people experiencing mental health issues, the link between a person’s mental health and their work life, cannot be underestimated.
Working can also help maintain an important part of a person’s identity – so they are not only defined by their mental health issues.
