The problem with yearly health check-ups

In any given year at least 20% of the population experiences some form of mental health issue from anxiety, depression, eating or sleeping disorder with some spending up to 45% of their life trying to manage it.

The annual Mental Health Week (8-14 October 2017) provides an opportunity to connect, reach out and get help. 
We’re a long way from solving problems but thanks to public awareness we’re closer to giving people ‘permission’ to get help earlier and often.

We will only know we have truly succeeded when we stop talking about the stigma and talk about the successes.
The problem with yearly check-ups is that it is yearly not daily.

What can the leader’s role in this success look like?
