The survey is part of our ongoing campaign to raise awareness about mental health and employee wellbeing. The deadline to complete the survey is Thursday 4 May.
The last time PRWeek and the PRCA partnered on a survey of this kind, in 2015, we found that a third of people working in the industry had experienced or been diagnosed with mental health issues and that a majority of respondents would not feel comfortable talking to their boss about it.
In February, a FuturePRoof report for the PRCA, authored by industry stalwarts Sarah Hall and Stephen Waddington, found that mental illness in the industry was being ignored or treated as a performance issue, with huge costs in lost working hours and staff turnover.
The survey results will be published during Mental Health Awareness Week, which commences Monday 8 May.
