Providing support for mental wellbeing at work can reap rewards, but HR teams often find it difficult to gain traction for this ambition within the business.
In XpertHR’s 60-minute webinar at 11:00am GMT on Wednesday 31 October, Natasha Gordon and Sarah Mason, from the Wellcome Trust, and Dr Barbara Mariposa, a medical doctor with a background in psychiatry and public health, explore the practical arrangements organisations can put in place to encourage a mentally healthy workplace.
They also discuss how to achieve change with small steps, which can help to garner the support of the senior leadership team for greater change, and draw on real-life cases to demonstrate the successes and difficulties of putting in place pragmatic support for mental health.
The webinar includes a Q&A session. Register now to submit your questions to the speakers.
