Wednesday 10th October is World Mental Health Day. 

In order to show our support the Haldane Fisher Team at our Newry branch attended a breakfast morning in the Canal Court, Newry in support of Action Mental Health. 

Action Mental Health (AMH) is a local charity which works to enhance the quality of life and the employability of people with mental health needs or a learning disability in Northern Ireland.

Employment and mental health statistics:

  • Almost 50% of long-term absences from work are due to mental health issues
  • Our “Pay Pennies Rebuild Lives” research (2012) showed that investment in programmes, such as our New Horizons service, could help address as much as £50 million of the cost of mental health problems in Northern Ireland annually
  • Engagement in the programme also contributed over £450,000 to the economy through employment and tax revenue
