At any one time, a sixth of the population in England aged 16 to 64 have a mental health problem, according to statistics body NHS Digital. Whether it is work colleagues, fellow students, family/friends or neighbours, we are all likely to know someone who is affected.

Lifecraft is a user-led charitable organisation for adults in the Cambridge area who have experience of mental health difficulties in their lives. It supports and encourages those who struggle with mental health. 

Andrew Deller, Manager of Lifecraft, will tell about the work of the charity and give an informative session focusing on key mental health illnesses, main symptoms to watch for and living with a mental health illness. It will provide information about mental health in general whilst signposting to support services available to those in need. 

This will be an informal session with department members encouraged to get involved and ask questions. There will also be a networking session after the presentation to open up discussion about mental health issues in the workplace to help break down the stigma surrounding these.
