You can’t pour from an empty cup. Self-care and looking after your own mental health are vital, especially if you're supporting others as a Mental Health First Aider.

Join us to learn ways to help you and your colleagues thrive in your role, through the lens of the 10 Keys to Happier Living from Action for Happiness.

Managing mental health in the workplace

In their role, line managers are often well placed to recognise when someone might be struggling with their mental health, encouraging them to access appropriate support and hopefully guiding them on the road to recovery. But how has this changed in remote working times?

Join us to gain access to expert insights on the theme of line managers and managing mental health at work, including: 

  • Best practice in supporting employees
  • Tools and resources available to managers
  • The role of self-care in our personal and professional lives
