About this Event
Human Everything empowers businesses to build better teams and enhance mental health awareness. Through services and training, delivered online or in person. Working with your teams to facilitate effective collaboration and positive team dynamics, making your working world a better place.
There is no health without mental health. We all have mental health but conversations about it don’t always come easily. Whether it’s your employees, your family, your friends or yourself, early intervention is key to supporting recovery and mitigating risk to the business.
This session will give attendees an appreciation of the different stages of mental health with the main takeaways being:
- Four broad categories of mental health.
- Warning signs of mental ill health.
- How to start a conversation around mental ill health.
- Practical Supports and creating a plan.
- Managing others – supporting the team.
The advantage of attending this session is to gain a better understanding of managing mental ill health in your workplace and understanding what simple steps can be taken to better support your teams and your business.
