Report out from this year’s Mental Health and Transport Summit

Report out from this year’s Mental Health and Transport Summit

The full report has been published following this year's ground breaking Summit on Mental Health and Transport. 

Anxiety UK and Mental Health Action Group were joined by senior representatives from leading transport organisations to look at the impact of mental health issues on their staff, their customers and the industry as a whole.

Claire Walters, Bus Users Chief Executive, who led one of the day's workshops, said: "1 in 4 of us is affected by mental health issues which represents a significant proportion of the people who use and run public transport. 

"As a hidden disability, however, and something that is often not talked about, it can be a real challenge to ensure that the needs of people with mental health issues are being met.

"This year's Summit has been an important first step in helping transport leaders to understand the issues surrounding mental health and to pledge their commitment to supporting people experiencing mental health issues."
