1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem in any given year.
As an employer, it is essential that we have a better understanding of mental health which is why the CIPD Mid & North Anglia Branch are working together to organise a Mental Health Awareness Day on 21st November 2016 at The Hallmark Hotel, Bar Hill, Cambridge.
See instructions below
We have a fantastic conference with some great speakers who will help us to understand the issues around mental health and what range of steps can be taken to support people in the workplace with mental health problems or to ensure our workplaces do not contribute to mental health problems.
The array of speakers we have are:
Jonny Benjamin – Key Note Speaker
Jonny is an award winning mental health campaigner and creator of the Finding Mike campaign which led to the creation of the Stranger on the Bridge documentary (http://www.jonnybenjamin.co.uk). Jonny will be discussing his experience of mental health in the workplace, along with the stigma associated with it.
Emotional Needs and Resources with Charlotte Green of Suffolk MIND
Mental Health First Aid with Keith Smith of KBS HR Consulting
Mindfulness with David Lynch of Namaste
Predicting Stress in the Workplace with Chris Batten of ASL
Carers and Emotional Support with Nesta Reeve of Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust
Breaking the Silence with David Beeney of Breaking the Silence
In addition we are supported by some fantastic exhibitors of local companies and charities who will be on hand to provide further information or support throughout the day.
