The impact of Covid-19, the cost of living and energy crisis, and ongoing funding and staffing cuts have affected us all, not just in the way we work but also in our day to day lives, our colleagues, friends and family.
All of this can have an impact on our physical and mental wellbeing.
West Midlands Museum Development (WMMD), Museum Development East Midlands (MDEM) and ted Learning are partnering to help build awareness of the challenges of maintaining good mental wellbeing and how we can all support each other.
Who should attend:
This workshop is open to anyone who wants to build a greater awareness of mental health.
If you are a leader we recommend that you also attend the afternoon workshop Mental Heath and Your Role as a Leader. Click here to find out more and book both workshops.
The workshop aims to raise awareness of mental health in the workplace and consider the language we use when referring to poor mental health and appreciate the impact this has.
It will explore what steps we can all take to help promote openness about mental health.
At the end of the workshop you will be able to:
- understand what we mean when talking about mental health
- identify examples of helpful and unhelpful language and the potential impact of both
- recognise one thing you can do to encourage more openness when discussing mental health
- explain what support mechanisms are in place and be able to describe the referral process if you or a colleague are experiencing mental health problems
Refreshments and lunch will be provided for all delegates.
Bookings close: 5pm, Friday 10 November
