Supporting Mental Health at Work
Supporting Mental Health at Work
Thursday, 6th May 2021 | Attend in London or Online
Prior to the COVID-19 crisis, mental health was the third most significant cause of workplace absence. It is highly likely that current and future crisis-related challenges will have further implications for this statistic.
Mental health must therefore become a core priority for organisations. Measures such as removing stigma, creating awareness and encouraging open conversations make a considerable difference to employee wellbeing and productivity, and will be essential in ensuring that staff can contribute their best work in spite of upheaval.
Join us for 'Supporting Mental Health at Work' to receive practical advice on supporting and protecting the mental health of your staff. Expert speakers will guide you on how to create supportive policy frameworks and equip you with the skills and insight you need to protect the resilience of your organisation.
Delegates will have the option of attending this event in-person in London or online. Any social-distancing requirements necessary at the time will be in place, with the safety of delegates and speakers at the heart of the day.
On-demand video recordings of each session will be made available to delegates following the event.
