Mental Health and Well-Being at Work - Online course

Looking after your mental health and well-being should be a priority for you, and being able to talk about your mental condition at work should be a priority in your team.

Two-day online course

In every single moment, on every single day, you rely on your mind to make sense of what’s happening to you, and to make decisions that work both in your interests, and in the interests of those on whom you rely to achieve your goals.

But your mind can be vulnerable, and sometimes you might find that you can’t rely on it to do what you need it to do.  Circumstances, relationships and life-experiences – both in the present and in the past – can affect the way that your mind functions, making you feel overwhelmed, confused, and unable to focus; and therefore, unable to know what to do, or how to cope.

You can contribute towards creating a culture of psychological safety at work where you and your team can talk about your mental health by knowing what to do to create appropriate boundaries with others, and by building trust to enable others to be open and honest.

This workshop will show you how to take a holistic approach to handling mental health at work, and give you practical guidance on what you can do to make handling mental health at work easier and more natural, so that you can get the work of your team done whilst taking care of the needs of the individual, and at the same time, belong to a team that gives you pride.
