Who is this for?
Team leaders or managers who would like to support employees.
Why should I take part?
Each year approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health condition and at least 1 in 6 employees experience common mental health problems in the workplace. Research has shown that work is the biggest cause of stress which can stop people performing at their best.
A reported 15.4 million working days are lost due to stress, anxiety and depression. Furthermore, mental health conditions are often hidden due to stigma and fear of discrimination and research has shown that a culture of fear and silence around mental health is costly to employers, so the true figure is unknown.
Mental health is more important than ever at the moment, with 67% of people reporting higher stress levels since the Covid-19 outbreak and 75% feeling more socially isolated than they did before.
How will it help me?
This session will provide understanding of
- What mental health is
- How to spot the signs and symptoms and how to improve it
- Provide tools and techniques to support both your own mental health and that of your team members
- Give you the opportunity to practice having wellbeing conversations during the session
We will also cover mental health on a wider scale and how you can help challenge the stigma around it every day.
This is an online session with a limited number of places available. Delegates will need access to a laptop or PC with a microphone and web camera to participate in this interactive course. Attendees will receive a link to the session one week before and a downloadable participant pack the day before. (Paper copies can be sent out if you notify Sarah Mcloughlin at least 1 week in advance [email protected] )
