Supporting World Mental Health Day
Joining organisations all over the world including the World Federation of Mental Health and the World Health Organisation, ERS Medical is raising awareness of what can be done to ensure that people with Mental Health problems can live with dignity.
Effectively supporting people who are experiencing mental health problems is on target to become one of the greatest public health challenges of our time. Stigmatising and discriminatory treatment can be particularly distressing when a person is experiencing a health crisis.
We all have mental health, and by failing to treat people with mental health problems with dignity we make it more difficult to ensure that everyone takes steps to safeguard their wellbeing and to seek help, as it can lead to self-stigma, low confidence, low self-esteem, withdrawal and social isolation.
