World Mental Health Day | Managing your employees’ mental health and wellbeing with Mind in the City - London, 10 October 2018

This year, 10 October 2018, marks “World Mental Health Day”. With research showing that mental ill health costs UK businesses £42 billion each year, what is your organisation doing to manage employee mental health, engagement, productivity and sickness absence?

If your role includes HR or you’re a manager, maintaining mental health & wellbeing within your workforce can be difficult when you’re not medically trained. How do you curb sickness absence and ensure that the business isn’t exposed to an employment tribunal claim?

Join Catherine Hawkes and Mind in the City on World Mental Health Day as we team up to run a course on managing mental health in the workplace. Learn from our experts and other like-minded professionals about creating a supportive culture surrounding mental health.
