Where’s Your Head At?

Where’s Your Head At? is a six week initiative which launched on 14th May 2018 to change health and safety law so it protects mental health in the same way as physical health.

Mental Health Foundation England have teamed up with Bauer Media and Natasha Devon MBE, mental health campaigner and Youth MHFA instructor, to launch a petition asking the government to change the law.  Celebrities, mental health charities and politicians are calling for this change to ensure workplaces and colleges provide mental health first aid in the same way they do physical first aid.

The campaign is calling for a change in law to ensure workplaces and colleges make provision for mental health first aid, moving us a step closer to parity of esteem between mental health and physical health.

The Foundation have signed the petition and are joining the social media thunderclap taking place on Wednesday 27 June.
