Wellbeing at Work

12 February @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

What is it about?

This webinar offers you the tools you need to support your own wellbeing and that of those around you.

Wellbeing is a hot topic right now — more than 20% of those working in the cultural sector said mental health problems had impacted on their career to a greater or lesser extent. We all deserve to feel happy, fulfilled and supported in both our personal and work lives, but wellbeing and good mental health don’t happen by accident.

Understanding our mental health and wellbeing, and learning how we can improve it, can have a really positive impact on how we interact with colleagues, feel about our work and help us achieve the best work-life balance.

During this workshop, Colin will help you develop your understanding of mental health and give you the tools to spot when colleagues or people you manage are struggling, as well as giving you the skills to support your own wellbeing and the wellbeing of those around you.

What will I gain?

— An understanding of the concept of wellbeing and what it means for you and your colleagues

— Knowledge of some of the basic tools required to support workplace wellbeing

— Insight into some of the ways in which we can promote the wellbeing of those around us

Who is it for?

Anyone who would like to better understand what mental health and wellness is and how to look after their own wellbeing and that of their colleagues and teams.

How do I take part?

We will be using an online training platform called WebEx for this event. Before booking, please complete our online training checklist to ensure you get the most out of this training.
