Our Ops team have recently returned from another successful trip to Uganda, where a TRiM programme for the Ugandan People’s Defence Force (UPDF) continues to run successfully. More than 400 personnel have now been trained at Practitioner, Manager or Instructor level since the programme began in 2014.
March on Stress Operations Director, Gavin Rogers, said: “We’re really pleased and proud to continue our work with the UPDF, whose personnel have been a pleasure to work with. The TRiM programme and support it is providing is really positive and has been extremely well received by all involved.”
Professor Neil Greenberg features in an informative new video from Maudsley Learning focusing on the importance of leadership in the workplace for good mental health.
Recent research from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) showed that almost a third (31 percent) of over 2,000 employees surveyed said they have experienced a mental health problem at some point during their working life, compared with a quarter (26 percent) in 2011 – highlighting further the importance of mental health support including good leadership in the workplace.
Professor Greenberg said: “Lots of research has been done which shows the approach of line managers can make a huge difference to their team members’ mental health.”

Professor Neil Greenberg has used his expertise in collaboration with charity Human Rights at Sea and the Nautical Institute to write new guidance on supporting the mental health of seafarers.
The guidance was launched in September at the inaugural Maritime Human Rights Conference, organised by the Human Rights at Sea team. The event helped to shine a spotlight on the importance of support for seafarers working in often difficult environments. The guidance provides an excellent opportunity for those in the maritime industry to review and update their support to seafarers, based on expert and evidence-based advice. Read more here.
The Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey (APMS) 2014 has recently been released - with results showing that help seeking for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) appears to be up on the previous 2007 survey.
Professor Neil Greenberg said: “This is the best national research into PTSD in England – with the last survey completed in 2007. Overall patterns remain the same as the previous 2007 study however help seeking appears up – only one third were getting any professional help in 2007; now it’s about half.”Read more here.
