Description

Following the positive feedback from the last events, Speak Easy is returning on 1st and 2nd November.

The theme for Speak Easy 8 will be ‘our mental health at work.’

At NTW, we care for people with mental ill health every day, but how good are we at supporting each other with our own mental health?

As many as one in four of us will experience problems with our mental health in the course of a year and it’s the leading cause of sickness absence in the UK. If we are going to do the best we can for our service users, we need to look after our own wellbeing and look after each other.

Speak Easy is for everyone. There are up to 100 places for staff in each locality and we would like to make sure that a representative from each team in the trust will attend.

We want to listen and learn from you about the kinds of things that we are already doing that have a real and positive impact on wellbeing at work. We will also focus on the things we can all do to tackle some of the underlying causes of work related stress, and we will explore how we might best support staff who are experiencing mental health issues.

If you haven’t been to a Speak Easy before:

  • Most of the work is done in small groups. It’s about you having conversations with each other. Everyone is welcome at all levels in the organsiation.
  • This is not just about you telling us what the problems are. It’s about recognising and talking about the things we do well, it’s about picking up some of the issues that we think can be worked on or fixed from the ‘centre’ of the organisation but it is also about you recognising that each and every one of us has a role to play in helping us to move to an even better place. Change and improvement is everyone’s business.
