Announcing our first confirmed workshop for our forthcoming conference, From Harm to Hope, on 1st March 2018 at the Nottingham Conference Centre.

Each year World Mental Health day provides an opportunity “for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide”. This year’s theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is mental health in the workplace.

In keeping with this year’s theme, our first confirmed workshop will be held by Pam Burrows – People Booster. This workshop will be introducing the concept of an organisational C.A.R.E. model focusing on the sustainability of your organisation by the maintenance of workforce wellbeing. The workshop is ideal for those wanting to focus on their own wellbeing in the workplace and strategies for driving wellbeing across our workforces.

Delivered in her usual engaging, funny and dynamic style, this workshop will offer food for thought, alongside useful strategies for you to take away.
