World Mental Health Day 2023

Today, 10th October 2023, is World Mental Health Day, the overall objective and theme this year is mental health is a universal human right for everyone.

Earlier this year BuildForce proudly became an LGTB+ Committed employer, with a large number of the LGTB+ Veteran community suffering with their mental health, it’s a day which is important to observe to help find ways this can be addressed.  To enlighten us, and to share their journey, we are joined by Fighting With Pride, military spouse Alex Meyrick, Veterans Community Worker for Greater London with the charity, and veteran Dougie Morgan, Veterans Community Worker, Scotland. Alex and Dougie share their experiences and provide great advice to anyone struggling, both within the LGTB+ community and outside it. Each one of us can make a contribution to ensure that people living with mental illness can live better lives and with dignity.
