Mental Health and Dog Therapy
It’s a serious topic and with one in six people in the UK suffering with a mental health condition at any one time, it’s one that cannot be ignored.
Mental health is starting to get the public and media attention it so desperately needs to help educate and raise awareness in society, and with anxiety and depression now being thought to be responsible for almost half of working days lost in Britain due to health, it’s essential that workplaces act now to put measures in place to help promote health and wellbeing.
