Free Open Minds workshop

20 Mar, 2017

The Mental Health Foundation is running a free Open Minds workshop on Wednesday, 5 April, exploring the skills managers need to have successful conversations about mental health in the workplace. 

Because mental health problems can affect anyone at any time, it’s critical that employers make talking about mental health a normal and safe thing to do. The workshop will cover;

  • Why it's important to talk about mental health issues at work.
  • Common barriers preventing successful conversations.
  • How managers can have conversations about mental health concerns.
  • Where to get further information and support for your workplace.

It will be followed by the official launch of the Open Minds resources.

Date: Wednesday, 5 April, 2017
Time: Workshop: 4–5.45pm. Resource launch: 6–7.30pm
