About the initiative

The Let’s Talk About It campaign is a mental health collective for INMO members, brought to you by INMO and Cornmarket. Our mission is to:

  • Get nurses and midwives talking about mental health,
  • Create a community of support,
  • Provide access to support and practical advice,
  • Encourage members to take action to protect their mental health when they need to

There’s no doubt that Covid-19 has had an impact on the mental health of many, not least nurses & midwives, so we are proud to be working with the INMO on this collective campaign for the benefit of all members at this time.

“Dedicated Nurses and Midwives strive to provide the best care for their patient’s everyday – but it's important to prioritise their own health too. Stigma around mental health exists in many professions, and we hope that this campaign will start positive conversations around mental health in the INMO community”

Ivan Ahern, Cornmarket Director.

Let's get behind this, together

INMO Income Protection Scheme

In our role as administrator of the INMO Income Protection Scheme, we at Cornmarket have a unique understanding of the conditions which cause claims to arise, and with this in mind, an initiative around mental health and wellbeing was built into the Scheme during its last review.
