Mental Health – webinar, web-resources and blogpost

The 10th-16th May marks Mental Health Awareness Week. The Bectu website has a Mental Health Hub and Head of Bectu, Philippa Childs has a blog-post on the subject here.

“Much of the creative industries have suffered devastation at the hands of the pandemic, with thousands of workers left without an income or meaningful support from the government. The individual and collective impact has been enormous and the road to recovery is challenging. With so much change and hardship in our work and personal lives, now more than ever, trade unions should be campaigning for improved workers’ mental health.

For those who moved to home working, the line between home and work has blurred leaving many finding it difficult to switch off. Our ‘Right to Disconnect’ guide aims to improve workers mental health by ensuring a fair work-life balance and establishing the responsibility of unions in safeguarding employees who work from home.”
