If you were to talk to someone who was in a mental health crisis would you have the skills to help?
How can we relate these statistics to you, your life and your team? While we often say we are fine, are we really?
This webinar aims to explore the importance of mental health awareness not only in the workplace but as individuals. This webinar looks at how you can take those initial steps to help someone and it aims to build your confidence and knowledge base to help you understand the different mental health challenges. The webinar will also look at how we define mental health, recognition of symptoms and how to look after your own mental health.
The impact of the pandemic on the mental health of those around us cannot be underestimated. This workshop aims to address how we can build our awareness of mental health, how we can support those around us and how through knowledge we can signpost and help each other.
