Description

Supporting Mental Health in the Workplace

A free to attend event as part of Remploys' commitment to supporting mental health in the workplace.



Workshop Outline

Mental health is the leading cause of sickness absence in the UK today. Over 91 million productive days are lost, costing UK businesses an estimated £26bn each year.

In 2011 the Access to Work Workplace Mental Health Support Service was commissioned and Remploy consultants began to support employed individuals who were experiencing difficulties in the workplace due to a mental health condition. This free and confidential service has now supported over 8000 people across the United Kingdom and has a 93% success rate of helping people to retain their employment, manage their mental wellbeing and perform well within their role.

Remploy is proud to call organisations from a variety of sectors as partners, including those from the NHS, Local Authority and Uniformed Services to name a few. However, we believe that more can be done, to encourage employers to discuss the impact of mental health within their organisation, to share ideas of how to promote a more positive attitude towards mental health and intergrate an appropriate structure of support.

With that in mind, Remploy would like to invite senior representatives from U.K businesses to join us for a special free event to network with colleagues from other like minded organisations, to discuss the impact of mental health and exhange ideas of how best to support employees experiencing symptoms of mental health. This 3 hour session will be a mix of networking, presentations and activities and will focus on:

  1. Discover the support available to employees via the Access to Work Workplace Mental Health Support Service.

  2. Discuss with other participants the real life examples of the triggers, effects and impact of mental health in their workplace.

  3. Exhange ideas and set an action plan of how best to minimise the impact of mental health on businesses through awareness raising and intergration of the Access to Work, Workplace Mental Health Support Service,

Package Includes:

- Free Entry

- A link to access all supporting presentations and workshop materials.

- Ongoing advice and support following the session via the Access to Work Workplace Mental Health Support Service.

- Support from Remploy in implementing ideas and actions raised during session activites.
