On 10th October 2017 organisations across the globe will be focusing on World Mental Health Day and this year’s theme of “Managing Mental Health in the Work place”.
In partnership with Southwark Council Public Health Department & the Southwark Wellbeing Hub we will be holding an event to support Southwark’s businesses in the London Bridge, Bankside & Borough Market area, with a particular focus on supporting the health and wellbeing of those affected by the attacks on 3rd June 2017.
The event is open to anyone working in the borough of Southwark.
The event will be in two parts. You are welcome to attend the entire day or only particular sections that you are interested in.
In the morning, a seminar with key partners from statutory and community services will focus on the emotional responses people may experience around trauma and the symptoms that may indicate someone needs more intensive support. This is a joint collaboration with Team London Bridge, Southwark Council, South London and Maudsley Trust (SLaM) & SLaM Career Management Service, WPF Therapy and Mind.
The session will also aim to raise awareness on how to initiate conversations with staff about their mental wellbeing, the signs and symptoms of mental ill health at work and what support can be put in place at work and in the community. In addition, the session will look at therapeutic approaches to dealing with trauma and traumatic events.
In the afternoon, the focus will be on a range of taster activities to enhance good mental health as well as how to avoid stress and burnout, the “Wheel of Wellbeing" activity & “Tea & Talk”, which business and employees can implement in their own organisations.
