5th June - Getting our heads together

Meera Rambissoon, Senior Consultant for passenger transport consultancy with the TAS Partnership, is undertaking a survey to help raise awareness and change attitudes around mental health and public transport. The surveys (one for operators and one for passengers) take just a few moments to complete but will encourage positive change in public transport for staff and passengers with mental health conditions.

With 1 in 4 people currently managing a mental health condition in the UK, illnesses such as depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder can a have debilitating though ‘hidden’ impact on staff and passengers alike, in some cases preventing passengers from travelling at all. 

Following the ground-breaking Mental Health & Transport Summit in February 2016, Meera is looking at:

  • what further steps can be taken to highlight and tackle issues around mental health
  • what support would be of greatest benefit to passengers and staff  
  • what is already being done in this field
  • what more could be done to break down barriers

The survey can be completed anonymous and the results will help to shine a spotlight on this critical area of public life.
