CIC supports the ‘Where’s Your Head At?’ campaign

An  Open  Letter to the Prime Minister signed by 50 business  leaders, including CIC, has today called for mental and physical first aid to be given equal status under  the Health and Safety Regulations.

Leaders from across business,  education and the third sector  have joined calls for the Government to prioritise its 2017 manifesto pledge to amend  the Health and Safety Regulations so that  workplaces  are required to make provision for mental as well as physical first aid.

The Open Letter follows the delivery of a 200,000-strong  petition to No. 10 Downing Street in October, which highlighted a groundswell of public support for the campaign.

The petition formed  part of the ‘Where’s Your Head At?’ campaign, launched in May by Bauer Media UK, Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England, and mental health campaigner, Natasha Devon MBE.
