Managing your mental health in the workplace
Today I talk about mental health and the workplace. Many of you have reached out and asked me questions about this. How do I tell my boss I need to take time off? What do I do if I have a gap in my employment history due to time in the hospital? Do I have to tell them? So what do we do? We make sure we only tell them what they need to know. Don't go overboard and share everything you are going through, just let them know that for personal reasons you need some time off. Also, you could say that you weren't working for a year due to a family issue or emergency. It is honestly up to you how much you share and what you tell them. So find your HR department and let them know what's going on and get all the paperwork in order so that you can then focus on yourself and your recovery and treatment. So reach out to your HR department asap so that you can get the support you need and deserve! We all know we don't operate as well when we are struggling and without any support, so the sooner we reach out the better off we will be! Please share any experiences you have in the comments. I know that rules and regulations can differ state to state and country to country, so the more we know the better!

How hard is it to find work when you have a disability?
The truth is, it can be EXTREMELY difficult for someone with a disability, particularly one with a developmental disability, to find competitive employment. Santa Perez shares her words of wisdom on the subject that is near and dear to her heart. Santa's message is part of a public awareness campaign called "Share the Dream" and a larger video collection of stories called, "Hear Me! People with Developmental Disabilities Speak Out" (https://youtu.be/FLthNFGjne8). Help us "Share the Dream" by liking this video and sharing it with your community so we can all increase the awareness of what it is like to live with a developmental disability!

Aisling's story: mental health and work
Only 1 in 4 people with a mental illness or phobia lasting for 12 months or more are in work according to research published by the TUC to coincide with its Disabled Workers’ Conference 2017. The research shows that mental health problems are a barrier to getting into work or staying in work because adequate adjustments are not being made in the workplace. Significant government and employer action is therefore needed to address the employment gap between disabled and non-disabled people.

Is it easy to prove a disability in the workplace? Ask the Expert
What is the definition of disability? A disabled person is defined as someone with a physical or mental impairment that has a ‘substantial’ and ‘long-term’ effect on their ability to do normal daily activities (Equality Act 2010). What are the benefits of employing disabled people? There are nearly 7 million people of working age in the UK with a disability or have a health condition. Historically there has been a significant gap between the proportion of disabled people employed compared with non-disabled people. Encouraging applications for people with a disability is good for business. It can help you to: • increase the number of high-quality applicants available • create a workforce that reflects the diverse range of customers it serves and the community in which it is based • bring additional skills to the business The costs of making reasonable adjustments to accommodate disabled employees are often low and there are help and support from other organisations. The benefits of retaining an experienced, skilled employee who has acquired an impairment are usually greater than recruiting and training new staff. What are reasonable adjustments? Employers have a legal duty to make reasonable adjustments to support disabled job applicants and employees. This means ensuring disabled people can overcome any substantial disadvantages they may have to do their jobs and progressing in work (Equality Act 2010). Expert employment solicitor Robert Rocker explains and answers some questions about disability discrimination and what is classed as a disability? Transcript of the video My name is Mark Ferron from Castle Associates and I speak to employment law experts across the country and in this short video I am speaking to employment law expert and solicitor Robert Rocker about disability discrimination Is it easy to prove disability discrimination in the workplace? To prove disability discrimination an employee has to show that they have a disability and that that disability impacts on their day-to-day activities. They also have to show that the employer was made aware of the disability and that the employer failed to make reasonable adjustments. How is a disability identified or assessed? A disability has to be a mental or physical disability that is substantial and it had long-term effect and impacts on your day-to-day activities. Now, this can be proved to your employer by the production of medical records, sometimes employers would want to do occupational health investigations. Those are the ways that you would seek to establish that you've got a disability. Thank you for watching I really hope you enjoyed this short video and if you did enjoy it please like and share.

My journey: Gap year, modelling, finding my purpose, rebuilding myself
Apologies for the poor quality hopefully you guys can still feel what I'm saying Hey guys welcome to my channel where I'll be spreading awareness about mental health through informative videos, sharing my experiences, spoken words and more. Transparency is purposely baring our soul to the world, the people close to us or just to ourselves by being open and understanding about our true self and feelings, even the negative parts. Most of us hide behind a mask because we might be scared or ashamed of who we really are but hiding behind a mask holds us back from healing the parts of ourselves that we're most afraid of. I'm taking part in creating a world where we're all transparent with eachother and full of love, where we won't have to raise kids who have to recover from their childhood and people treat eachother with understanding and compassion not because we have to but because we want to and I hope that after watching these videos you'll want to take part aswell. I believe that as humans we're all connected in a way we might not be able to understand and we're all capable of reaching our full potential as individuals and as a species, with the help of each other. There's alot of people who are full of hate in this world for various reasons but I honestly believe that if they're shown a different way they will want to be different. There's so much better to come for our world *DISCLAIMER* I'm not an expert on human behaviour and I'll never be an expert. I don't have the answer to all your questions and I can't rescue you. I believe we're all capable of understanding ourselves, being independent and making the right choices for ourselves and we find the strength to do all these things within ourselves and the only person who is an expert on you is YOU!

Return to work after common mental disorders
Researchers from Tranzo at Tilburg University in the Netherlands conducted research into the return to work process for employees who have been on sickness absence because of common mental disorders (CMDs). The IOSH-funded study focused on common issues such as anxiety, depression, stress and adjustment disorders. It was split into two parts: one with mental health and occupational health professionals, general practitioners and managers; the other with the workers themselves. While the research was conducted in the context of the Dutch social security system, UK-based occupational health and medicine professionals have recognised many findings. These findings show workers need help gaining self-awareness and regaining control, while the knowledge and skills of their supervisors should be strengthened. Personalised return-to-work plans involving good communication and assessment of each worker’s values, views and needs can also be helpful.

And concludes, "It's not what we can or can't do on the outside, it's about what we can or can't do on the inside." Charlie Hall is a glassware entrepreneur living in San Miguel de Allende. Charlie was born with Moebius Syndrome, a rare congenital condition that left him with some facial paralysis and arms that end at his elbows.
