Mental health in public relations is frequently ignored, claims The PRCA’s latest FuturePR report
22nd February 2017
The latest FuturePRoof report published by the PRCA explores the mental health of the public relations profession.
The #FuturePRoof report makes three recommendations for employers and managers.
- The cost of mental health to public relations and the broader business community is well known. Make mental health and wellbeing a management issue within your management team.
- Company policies and procedures should cover sickness due to mental health, and provide clear signposting and training to all employees and managers on policies and procedures.
- Where resources do not exist within an organisation, access external support such as the resources listed in this report. Small organisations should consider retaining specialised support.
