Ford To Support Of Tackling The Stigma Behind Mental Illness
In the UK, 1 in 4 people will experience mental health problems at some point during their lives. Suicide is the biggest killer of men aged 45 and under, so is it now time to park up the stigma of mental illness once and for all and get people talking.
American car manufacturer, Ford, has joined forces with Time to Change to create a TV advertisement campaign entitled ‘Don’t let mental health be the elephant in the room’. The campaign run by mental health charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness will encourage sufferers of mental health problems to speak out by using the front seat of a car as a safe place. Ford’s chairman and managing direct, Andy Barratt, tells the standard newspaper: “If we can save just one life through this campaign, it will be more than worth it.”

More Electric Charge Points Introduced In London And Southampton For Electric Vehicles
Chargemaster PLC (based in Luton, and supplier of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles), has expanded its UK’s largest public charging network for electric vehicles, Polar network, across London and Southampton.
Back in August 2017, the mayor of London Sadiq Khan, announced that a vast 4.5 million pounds would be invested in 1,500 new electric charging points across the capital, as the popularity of electric vehicles continues to grow.
