The Open Minds videos and electronic resources provide managers with practical tips to help with conversations about mental health in the workplace.
The longterm outcome of Open Minds is that New Zealand employers are able to develop workplace policies, structures and cultures that are more inclusive and supportive of people with experience of mental illness.
Open Minds videos and electronic resources are produced by the Mental Health Foundation in collaboration with Attitude Group on behalf of the Health Promotion Agency’s Like Minds, Like Mine programme.
Please join us for a free Open Minds workshop on Wednesday, 5 April 2017, exploring the skills managers need to have successful conversations about mental health in the workplace. Following the workshop, we will be officially launching the suite of Open Minds resources. The workshop is now fully booked but please register to be added to the waitlist.
