You will have seen a number of messages last week in the build-up to World Mental Health Day which took place on 10th October. This day highlighted the importance of mental health with the key theme of suicide prevention being on the agenda for 2019. Working at ASPH our role is two-fold in that we have a responsibility to look after the mental health of our patients but also to look after our own mental health. There is a wealth of evidence showing a close link between positive staff ‘wellbeing and experiences’ and ‘increased patient safety and outcomes’. We are unable to care for others effectively if we aren’t in the best frame of mind ourselves so please remember that ‘every mind matters’.
