I notice the the UK Department Of Work And Pensions (DWP) is giving this short film another airing on our TV screens. It’s not new but was criticised when first unveiled some months ago and was subsequently given a very low key outing(this is the 60 second version). It’s targeting employers attitudes to employing people who have had mental health problems.
Getting some of these people off benefits is one of the UK governments stated aims but changing employers attitudes to mental health may be a tougher nut to crack.
This advert voiced by Philip Glenister is one attempt to tackle the other side of the problem.
Is it effective?
