Overview

Over the past few years mental health has moved into the foreground as both a challenge, and an opportunity in the workplace.  There’s an increasing sense that action is needed and a range of options for taking that action.

This webinar will look at three areas, focusing on practical tips for reps in relation to mental health:

  • Noticing distress and reaching out appropriately to somebody who isn’t coping
  • Supporting disclosure and assisting with ongoing concerns, including reasonable adjustments and return to work
  • Working strategically to improve the nature of work to protect and promote mental wellbeing for all staff.

We’ll be joined by Chris O’Sullivan, Head of Workplace Mental Health at Mental Health Foundation, the UK’s leading prevention focused mental health charity.

If you're a union representative, you're entitled to paid release from work to take part in this webinar. Talk to your employer.
