Mental Health Taster Sessions

We appreciate that you’ll want to make sure that Mental Health at Work is the right partner for your organisation, including our approach to workplace mental health and the style of our facilitated workshops. We run regular Taster Sessions on a variety of topics, designed for anyone who is considering a mental health programme in their organisation.

Upcoming Taster Sessions

Thursday April 27th 2023 

via Zoom

13.00 – 14.00 BST

Prevention in the workplace starts with promoting good mental health and positive behaviours across the organisation, whilst reducing unsafe behaviours that can cause ill health. Managers play a key role in this vision, but we know it can be difficult to navigate without supporting structures and processes, but getting this right will have a significant impact on both engagement, productivity and financial returns.

In this one hour virtual taster session we will explore some ideas which can be helpful in supporting managers including the evolution of a wellness action plan to include comfort around return-to-work discussions.  

We will introduce some of the tools and resources that we think are helpful for managers, including helping you get to know employees better through Workplace Individual Support Plans, Wellness Action Plans and return to work discussions for anyone who has had a prolonged sickness absence. We will explore possible concerns,  steps that could be put in place to address these and the legal requirements around consideration of reasonable adjustments. Together these tools, along with skills for managers can build confidence around the conversations that can make a difference to workplace mental health. We will talk about the ‘revolving door’ of absence and return to work which can be both draining and costly for all involved.  

In this short webinar session, you will have the opportunity to experience the approach of Mental Health at Work and the broader benefits for your organisation. This session is aimed at senior leaders and managers in HR, D&I and Talent Management who are considering beginning or extending their workplace mental health programme to bring behavioural change.

There is a small charge for this event; as a not for profit, social enterprise, our mission is to change working lives, reaching as many people as possible in the workplace to change attitudes and behaviours around mental health. This fee enables us to continue to deliver this mission, whilst bringing frontline developments and considerations around workplace mental health to a broad audience.
