Mental Health Awareness Week
Attwaters Jameson Hill are supporting Mental Health Week which started on the 13th May until Sunday 19th May.
This year’s Fundamental Facts follows the recent publication of the 2014 Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey. This highlights that, every week, 1 in 6 adults experiences a common mental health problem, such as anxiety or depression and 1 in 5 adults has considered taking their own life at some point.
Mental Health Awareness Week is the UK’s national week that aims to raise awareness of mental health and promote good mental health for all. It has been run by the Mental Health Foundation since 2001. The theme for 2019 is Body Image – how we think and feel about our bodies.
As clinical negligence specialists we know all too well the impact that mental health can have on victims leading to severe depression, suicidal thoughts and at times more tragically suicide.
We also know all too well the impact that negligence from a treating hospital/individual can have to a person’s mental health. Sometimes negligent hospital treatment can lead to body dysmorphia which is a devastating condition. We are here to support all victims of mental health and have a team of solicitors here to address any mental health suffered as a result of negligence.
