Greater access for all:
promoting good mental health
Mental Health services were already stretched and under-resourced in much of the world before the global pandemic hit. The new, uncertain circumstances we now live in are affecting people’s emotional wellbeing, making it more vital than ever for everyone to be able to access the support they need.
To mark World Mental Health Day, we’re sharing free research, author insights and interviews with people in our community about making mental health for all a reality. Read, share and tell us about your research on mental health and wellbeing. Together we can make a difference.

In these challenging times we believe it’s important to stay connected any way we can. At a time when the future is uncertain and we can feel disconnected, the smallest act can have the biggest effect.
To help you understand more about this and support you during this time, we’ve selected some key articles on the subject, videos from the authors, and interviews from people in the sports and entertainment industries to get their viewpoints on the effects it’s having on their lives.

Stories from our communities
Found in more and more workplaces, mental health first aiders are ordinary members of staff who have been trained to spot the signs of mental illness, and to guide colleagues to the help that they need. We spoke to two of our own mental health first aid team about their roles and the importance of being able to access support for good mental health at work.
