Event description

Description

Mentis Training and Consultancy Ltd in partnership with DIVA Magazine, are hosting Care in MYnd, a one day event focusing on workplace mental health and the varying life changing events which can impact your employees. We are very proud to introduce Pladis as our headline sponsor.

Aims:

1. Raise awareness on how life changing events can affect someone's mental health and potentially reducing productivity in the workplace.

2. To provide employers with advice on how they can put measures in place to support employees.

3. Inform employers of their legal responsibility and duty of care.

Over the course of the day we will bring you speakers from across the UK to talk about issues that can affect us all, from a life changing illness, gender identity, childhood experiences which shape our future, post natal depression, domestic abuse, affects of Hillsborough or a terrorist attack. Whether you are currently unemployed, a student, self employed, or a cross-sector of employers. Anyone from cleaner to executive board members should attend.

Any huge life changing event can happen to any of us at any time and as employers, we need to be in a position to better support. The seminar will provide you with ideas on how that support can be put into place.

We have some engaging, thought provoking speakers who will be talking about their experiences in their own unique way, as well as taking questions. There will also be a short film and a comedy show to finish the day.

It is our mission to dispel the myth that 'it will never happen to me' and provide you with useful tools to enable individuals to not only support their employees but also themselves

You will come away with ideas for a strategy, an action plan on how to move forward as well as a better understanding about the challenges impacting staff mental wellbein

Our speakers include:

MICHELLE PARTINGTON – Michelle experienced sexual abuse as a child but once it stopped, the impact didn’t. It affected how she interacted with others, trusted and formed relationships. Michelle also battled with her sexuality for a number of years, clouded by the abuse #CSA #childsexualabuse

DENISE WELCH – Screening of the award winning Black Eyed Susan followed by a Q&A. The film is a powerful portrayal of Denise’s own experience with depression. She has become a great ambassador for mental health and has been involved in many campaigns to help raise awareness #postnataldepression #depressio

JENNY HARDMAN – Following a lifetime of domestic abuse Jenny believes that it’s not what happens to us that matters but how we react that makes a difference. It is ultimately our choice in how we respond and is here to tell her story of how she managed her own self care with crippling anxiety, and of those around her #domesticabuse

MICHELLE TURNER – A true story or resilience, bravery and overcoming adversity following a life changing illness which ended a 20 year career in the Royal Air Force. She will talk about how her daughter saved her life and how she is now turning her life around #lifelimitinginjury

ZOE THOMPSON – In June 15 whilst on holiday in Tunisia, Zoe and her family where caught up in the beach terrorist attack. Zoe will talk about how she is moving forward with her life follow a struggle, how she is supporting others but still finds it a struggle to source support for her daughter Millie #terroristattack
