11th Oct 2016 12:00pm – 11th Oct 2016 1:00pm
Mental Health issues such as anxiety and depression are very common amongst people of working ages, and while many different factors contribute to this, most people in the workplace will have either experienced a mental health issue or know someone that has.
This session aims to provide participants with a greater understanding of mental health issues, focusing on depression and anxiety, including the signs that someone may be experiencing one or both of these.
The session will provide participants with an understanding of the factors that make people more vulnerable to mental health issues, and what they can do to support someone they know or suspect is vulnerable.
The session also provides practical support around developing a plan for responding to potential risk of suicide. This session combines a blend of interaction, exercises and information to support participants’ learning.
