  • Heathers gig to See Change: Oct 25 | SeeChange | The National Mental Health Stigma Reduction Partnership
    was the first single from their current album Kingdom The chorus Its alright not to feel ok is the line that has resonated with thousands of fans and followers and that is hoped will help break the silence and get student s talking openly about mental health Heathers duo Ellie and Louise McNamara said We are absolutely delighted to be putting our names behind the campaign to reduce the stigma attached to mental health issues in Ireland and further afield This is something that has touched us in our own lives and those of some of our closest friends and the lyric in Forget Me Knots is intended to get the message out that it s perfectly normal to feel down from time to time and we should all feel comfortable talking to friends and family about it The worst thing possible would be to keep it all internalised Mental Health Week should be supported by everyone to help get that message out not just to students but to the entire population Also running as part of TCDSU s Mental Health Week is tonight s Speak Your Mind event modelled on First Fortnight 2012 s Soapbox Sessions and featuring Claire

  • News attitudes research | SeeChange | The National Mental Health Stigma Reduction Partnership
    Despite increased intent to seek professional help attitudes to disclosure and openness around personal experience with a mental health problem have decreased in the period since 2010 and most notably among those under severe financial strain farmers and young males An increasing number of those surveyed said they would hide a mental health problem from family friends and employers and work colleagues and would even delay seeking help for fear of someone finding out Similarly there was an increased belief that peers would react negatively to a person s mental health disclosure ignoring the person distancing themselves ending relationships and limiting career prospects See Change s stigma reduction activities will now focus on those under financial strain as a new target group to engage with a message of recovery openness and understanding around mental health problems The study also highlighted increased awareness and understanding of mental health stigma and support services Attitudes around the outcomes for recovery from a mental health problem and the integration of people with mental health problems have also softened although attitudes towards people with a diagnosis of schizophrenia still lag behind There is a growing recognition of the factors that can positively and negatively impact on mental health The importance of friend and family support as well as financial security were rated as most crucial to mental health Main findings Attitudes in 2012 vs 2010 1 An increased number of Irish people claim to have some experience a mental health problem either themselves or through others 2 There is increased awareness and understanding of mental health mental health problems stigma and support services 3 There has been some improvement of attitudes around the outcomes for recovery from a mental health problem although attitudes to people with a diagnosis of schizophrenia still lag behind 4 There

  • IBEC guide to See Change at work | SeeChange | The National Mental Health Stigma Reduction Partnership
    in IBEC s head offices in Dublin IBEC Director General Danny McCoy said Mental health remains an area that many people do not understand or may fear and as a result it is not talked about The effects can include loss of potential labour supply unemployment absenteeism and reduced productivity One in five people of working age experience a mental health problem such as anxiety or depression It is vital that companies put the right structures in place to support employees A recent IBEC survey of HR management practices found that over one third of respondents had engaged in employee health screening in the twelve months preceding the survey Almost one in five had a stress management campaign and just over one in ten had held a mental wellbeing campaign Encouraging open communication is central Very often employees are reluctant to seek help initially Often colleagues may be more likely to notice a change in manner from individuals experiencing mental health problems It is crucial that organisations encourage a positive work culture where everyone is treated with respect and dignity and issues such as bullying and harassment are not tolerated Mental health problems are not necessarily a barrier to effective working In fact work can play a very positive role in supporting individuals who have or who are recovering from mental health problems It is important to remember that the vast majority of people with mental health problems are capable of continuing to work for others the right supports just need to be in place Also speaking at the event John Saunders Director of See Change said Mental health and work are essential to each other yet See Change s most recent research has found that the majority of Irish people would deliberately conceal a mental health problem at work
