Mental Health and Safety is a group dedicated to all aspects of Mental Health. There is a specific focus on attaining, maintaining and sustaining work placement not just paid work, including self-employment volunteering and internships. Often burnout, stress, anxiety and depression are trivialised and seen as insignificant at best. Our work colleagues may see words such as anxiety and depression as synonymous with laziness. Increasingly, we may spend more and more time trying to mask our health condition because of fear that if our bosses or colleagues knew it would put our job or position at risk. Hiding our real mental health can be time-consuming and isolating, everything we DO NOT need to aid a healthier life style. This Meet Up group will assist employers and HR who would like an introduction to Mental Health Awareness from an accredited CPD course provider.
