Mental Health and Work

I heard this item on BBC radio this morning. Sadly it came as no surprise to me. 300,000 people lose their jobs each year due to lack of support for those with mental health problems. These figures are a real indictment of our mental system. Not of those working in it but of the chronic and acute underfunding of the service. They are also a sign of how short sighted governments of both flavours have been over decades.

These figures are one reason why I offer a service to those with mental health problems. Everyone I know I believe knows someone with a mental health problem. I know several and by that I mean socially, not including those I have met through many years working in the system and through my aromatherapy practice.

So if you need some help in managing anxiety, stress or depression but are not able to get the help you need from the system, do call and book an appointment.
