Did you know, 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in any given year (Mind, Mental Health Organisation).
Monday, 10 October is World Mental health day and the Equality & Diversity (E&D) team are highlighting this event with the aim to raise the profile and remove the stigma of mental health. There will be an information giving stall on the actual day (Monday, 10 October) in the Pennine Suite, 5th Floor, All Saints, where amongst other things staff will be able to take away useful literature and information on support available to them around mental health issues.
There will be members of the team with the stall over the lunchtime period (12 – 2 pm) if you have any questions around support available at MMU.
There will also be information available on the E&D website including tips on how to keep your mind healthy, case studies of people who have experience of living with a mental health condition and useful links/contacts.

Join us for the tenth Innospace monthly business group on Thursday 20th October, to share ideas, talk to the MMU business support network and learn something new.
The Innospace monthly business group creates a practical and supportive environment for NEW and ASPIRING entrepreneurs to prepare for the launch of their business.
The theme of this month’s workshop is to provide an overview of the key issues to consider when employing people within your business.
This session will take you through the basic aspects of employment law and will cover areas such as:
- Employee/ employer relationship
- Principles of an employment contract
- Policies and procedures in the workplace
Ruth and Jan established the HR Solutions Partnership in May 2007 to provide HR expertise to companies without their own HR department or who simply want to supplement their own internal HR support with consultancy advice, and /or managers who require support to help them navigate through the legalities of employing and managing people. However, their reputation in the market place has taken them beyond the small business sector, working with a wide variety of businesses across the UK and internationally.
Since then they have been involved in a variety of HR activities, ranging from the design of strategic HR initiatives for top Fortune 500 companies, bespoke training and development workshops, to the provision of day to day advice and guidance for small businesses.
Come along at 10am for coffee and join in the practical and interactive session on the theme of the month then stay and work with the MMU business support team on your business idea.
