Look out for your work colleagues: a Mental Health Day Event

World Mental Health Day

Published: 4 October 2018

Did you know that roughly one in four of the people you will see at work today will struggle with mental health this year. Despite this, many believe it doesn’t affect anyone they know – our colleagues and friends at work aren’t immune!

We want to change how organisations think and talk about mental health in the workplace. We all have a role to play, and your attitude to mental health could change a colleague’s life.

As part of World Mental Health Day 2018, join us online to watch our special event of seminars and a discussion session specifically focussed on mental health in the workplace. This event is part of our commitment to change how people think and talk about mental health in the workplace and is aimed at everyone who would like a better understanding of mental health in the workplace.

The seminars are taking place on Wednesday 10 October 2018 (9.30am – 11.30am) and you can watch them from your smartphone, tablet or computer via: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hoHNNQ-f2c
