OutsideIn: Mental Health Awareness Week

25% of the people will at some point in their lives feel the impact of mental ill health. That's 25% of the people you walk past in the supermarket, who you see liking photos on your Facebook profile, who send you Christmas cards every year. It can strike at any time and to anyone - making it all the more important that we maintain a dialogue around mental health to help end the stigma that exists around it. Here we look at the impact of mental ill health to business to try and give you an idea of how big the problem in Britain today.
