1 in 7 people experience mental health problems in the workplace and over 300,000 people with mental health issues lose their jobs every year. In 2018, MediaCom have committed to addressing the issue head-on by providing proper support for their employees- Mental Health Allies. Teaming with The Book of Man, MediaCom recruited 40 members of staff to be allies, trained to support other employees struggling with their mental health. In support of our initiative is none other than Professor Green, award winning rapper and songwriter who campaigns heavily for the mental health movement. Together, we want to encourage more businesses to adopt a similar scheme and tackle the stigma that exists in the work place.
