Dear Colleague
YOUNG PEOPLE AND MENTAL HEALTH

AGM Item 58 called on the union to establish a campaign to highlight the issues on mental health, particularly in younger people and to offer independent counselling support through the union rather than through the employer.

The National Executive Committee have noted and adopted the following report of their Health and Safety Sub-committee:

We note the resolution on file and the concerns around our young members and instruct the General Secretary to contact Mental Health charities to explore how we can facilitate our members to make contact with these organisations outside of those services provided by the employers.

Branches and Regional Councils be advised.

I am acting in accordance with this instruction. Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of relevant members.

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
