Virtual conference: MENTAL HEALTH AT WORK
A virtual conference on practical strategies for workplace wellbeing
14 September 2021, 9am - 3.30pm
Hear from leading experts on the latest research and strategies that work and create a culture of positive mental health in your organisation.
We have been improving people’s understanding of mental health for 24 years.
A wealth of evidence shows that organisations with a culture of positive mental health, and with strategies in place to support the mental health and wellbeing of their people, enjoy greater employee engagement, higher productivity and better staff retention: a compelling business case.
And the human arguments are equally strong: for many of us, work is a central pillar of our lives. It can bring us a sense of success and fulfilment, and a positive work environment can actually be a protective factor for our mental health. For some of us, work colleagues may represent our main source of regular contact with others, particularly if mental health challenges are causing us to withdraw from other social interactions.
Work can also be a source of stress, sometimes exacerbated by our perceived need to be strong and perform well all the time. This can have a negative impact on our mental health. For all these reasons, it is beyond doubt that there is a moral imperative for organisations to focus on mental health.
