Layard et al (2013) argued that happiness is “the truest measure of well-being”. Doing things that make you happy is certainly good for your mental health, so take time to do something for yourself this World Happiness Day.
A busy week for Dr A.J. Yates. Great to have such positive feedback for his talk on mental health at the National NHS Complaint Managers Forum – and brilliant to hear a real desire to support the mental health of staff at both Bedford Hospital and CMK Medical Centre.
AJ was also proud to be a guest of Milton Keynes Safety Centre (Hazard Alley) at the 2019 Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards. We didn’t win our category, but was great to be recognised and nominated for providing the best training scheme. Huge congratulations to Jo and everyone at Hazard Alley for their dedication and hard work – and for adding Mental Health First Aid to their list of available courses.

There is no one size fits all when it comes to mental health, but looking beyond pills to help individuals obtain a more sustainable recovery seems like a good idea. Incidentally, Dr A.J. Yates is proud to be talking at the National NHS Complaint Managers Forum spring conference today on the mental health of staff. Image courtesy of NHS England.
