MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK
Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet people are still afraid to talk about it. The nature of our industry means we work long hours, for long periods of time away from home which can decrease our mental state. If you go through a period of poor mental health, especially onsite, you may find that the feelings you are dealing with become difficult, or even impossible to cope with.
This week’s Mental Health Awareness Week is all about bringing together a conversation about mental health and looking out for others in need. Whether that’s through making someone a cup of tea to improve their day or asking someone twice how they are, since sometimes we say we’re fine when we’re not.
On each show that we are the Operations Team on in 2019, there will be Mental Health posters within the Organisers’ Office to raise awareness of Mental Health as we believe that by having our voice heard within the industry means that we can initiate change and improve people’s mental state.
