EQUALITY & DIVERSITY

act. Combined, they make up a new act that provides a legal framework to protect the

rights of individuals and advance equality of opportunity for all.

The protected characteristics are:

PREVENT (safeguarding vulnerable people)

Prevent is part of the UK’s counter terrorism strategy, preventing people from becoming

involved in or supporting terrorism.

Radicalisation:

The process where someone is exploited and manipulated towards crime or terrorism,

most often by someone else who have their own negative objectives.

What to do

If you are concerned about someone you know who may be displaying unusual

behaviours, they may be having problems at home or other personal issues, this could

mean that they could benefit from support.

Behaviours

What will those signs that someone needs help look like?

In truth they will look a lot like other troubling behaviour, so without worrying too much

about the reason for someone you know acting differently or in a strange way, think about

what behaviours would give you a reason to be concerned. It is usually as simple as a gut

feeling that a friend might be in need of some support or help.

So please talk to someone for support.

While the risk of someone being radicalised is very rare, it’s not one we can

totally ignore!

Everyone needs to NOTICE, CHECK and SHARE

MENTAL HEALTH

Being mentally healthy doesn’t just mean that you don’t have a mental health problem.

We all have mental health!

If you’re in good mental health, you can:

• make the most of your potential

• cope with life

• play a full part in your family, workplace, community and among friends.

Some people call mental health ‘emotional health’ or ‘well-being’ and it’s just as important

as good physical health.

Common mental health difficulties include: Affects approximately

Mental health is everyone’s business. We all have times when we feel down or stressed or

frightened. Most of the time those feelings pass. But sometimes they develop into a more

serious problem and that could happen to any one of us.

Everyone is different, you may bounce back from a setback while someone else may feel

weighed down by it for a long time.

Your mental health doesn’t always stay the same. It can change as circumstances change

and as you move through different stages of your life.

There is sometimes a stigma attached to mental health problems. This means that people

might feel uncomfortable about them and don’t talk about them much. Many people don’t

even feel comfortable talking about their feelings. But it’s healthy to know and say how

you’re feeling. It is just as important to support those around you who maybe experiencing

a period of low mental health. If you or some you know is having difficulties with their

mental health go straight to your GP, a trusted professional or friend for support
