Actions and Detail Panel
Emotional Health and Wellbeing in Creative Companies
Thu 27 April 2017, 12:15 – 14:00 BST
Following the success of our breakfast seminar towards the end of last year, we will be revisiting this important topic at our lunchtime workshop on Thursday 27 April 2017. It was clear from our last seminar that this is a topic about which companies and individuals feel strongly. Whilst its profile is increasing and there is more open discussion, there remain some taboos and assumptions which are hindering a greater understanding of how we can identify and support those who may need help.
We will consider particularly the link between creativity and emotional health. Recent research explores possible connections and vulnerability to emotional health issues for those who are of a creative nature and those who work in creative environments, such as architecture and design.
We will discuss not only how to engender a working environment which promotes positive emotional health, but also how to spot likely signs of emotional health challenges as well as the legal framework within which this matter operates.
We would like to focus particularly on the role of HR in relation to emotional health in the workplace:
- What can we do to lessen the likelihood of emotional health issues;
- What can we do to support those who face these challenges;
- What can we do to ensure our own positive emotional health;
- Challenges and barriers that we may face when addressing these issues.
We will be joined by Paul Spencer, Policy and Campaigns Manager from Mind, the mental health charity.
