Making Sense of Mental Health


Aims to make participants better informed and comfortable in addressing mental health, looking at what we can do to help ourselves and others.

Mental health has moved centre stage in many areas of our lives for good reasons. There are huge costs at personal, performance and financial levels. There also persists a misunderstanding, misinformation and lack of opportunity to have an honest dialogue around this subject.

This introductory workshop, suitable for all staff, aims to breakdown common misconceptions about what mental health is, seeking to make it safe to talk about mental health and ill-health. It shares facts and figures to demystify and move beyond blame, shame and unhelpful attitudes.

The workshop explores some of the common underlying factors which contribute to mental ill health, the role of stress and burnout, and what to do if in distress. Participants will leave with an understanding of stigma, discrimination and prejudice and what we can do to eradicate them - how we can all take better care of ourselves and others and stay well.

The workshop is grounded in science and evidence, led by leading Work Well Being Associate a medical doctor with a background in psychiatry and herself an ‘expert by experience’.
