RED 52 - mental health

Mental health affects one in four people. This programme explores the impact that this can have on the operational railway, and urges everyone to look out for themselves and their colleagues.

This episode contains scenes and discussions about averting suicide, and although they’re not graphic, some viewers may find them distressing.  Consider the impact on the mental health of your viewers when showing this programme and provide staff with appropriate support when needed.


The programme covers: 

  • Support available for staff suffering from mental health issues
  • Information on intervention


In this issue, instead of a competition to win a £100, we are asking staff to name a mental health charity to be the recipient of £300.  To send your suggestions, please email  Please encourage your staff to enter.
