The webinar will focus on the growing awareness of and the importance of good mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. Not simply because it’s the “right thing to do”, but because recognising, valuing, improving and protecting mental wellbeing in the workplace makes sound business sense.
In our webinar we will explore:
- why mental health is a universal asset for individuals, organisations and society
- the ways many businesses currently respond to mental distress expressed by staff
- how to set up a broad, good practice roadmap that recognises the complexity and variety of mental health
- how you can give line managers the necessary tools and time to help identify, manage and prevent poor mental health in the workplace.
