Description

About Mental Health in the Workplace

Mental health in the Workplace is a half-day foundation workshop which aims to increase the knowledge and skills of staff around how they can promote good mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.

Aims:

  • To raise awareness of the importance of mental health and wellbeing and provide people with the opportunity to discuss mental health openly in the workplace

  • To normalise mental health and wellbeing and encourage participants to place equivalent emphasis on mental health and wellbeing as they do on physical health recognising that the two are interlinked

  • To encourage employees to think about their own mental health and introduce some simple ways to look after (your mental health) the ‘smartest tool in the box’ everyday

  • To improve attitudes and behaviours in order to reduce stigma and discrimination associated with mental health problems and raise awareness of local sources of support both in and out with the workplace

Learning Outcomes:

After completing the toolbox talks, participants will:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of mental health and wellbeing and why it is important

  • Be aware of the impact that mental health can have on physical health and vice versa

  • Be familiar with their mental health and wellbeing and how to look after it

  • Demonstrate an understanding of stigma and how it acts as a barrier to recovery

  • Be aware of organisations, websites and telephone help lines that are available locally and nationally to support an individual who has or who is caring for someone with mental health related issues
