Camden Town Hall, Judd Street, WC1H 9JE
You are warmly invited to our celebration of World Mental Health Day on October 10.
The theme of the day this year is Mental Health in the Workplace. As a leading provider of workplace mental health support, Jobs in Mind are encouraging our partners, friends and local employers to join us in thinking further about how to support people who are experiencing mental health problems within the workplace.
Every organisation in Britain is affected by mental health problems in the workforce. At any one time, one worker in six will experience depression, anxiety or problems relating to stress.
The total cost to employers of mental health problems among their staff is estimated at nearly £26 billion each year. Across the UK, mental ill health is the leading cause of sickness absence, costing an average of £1,035 per employee per year.
More than ever employers need to ensure that the wellbeing of their staff is a priority. Our celebration will provide an opportunity to meet with other employers to share good practice, hear from people who have lived experience of mental health problems and to learn more about good workplace practices in relation to mental health.
The agenda is as follows:
|Welcome by the Mayor of Camden.
Lunch and networking
|Introduction from a user of Jobs in Mind’s services, and the Director of Jobs in Mind||12.30pm-1pm|
|Good mental health workplace practice –
|Q&A and discussion||1.15pm-2pm|
The Time to Change pledge information will be available, as well as plenty of information about Jobs in Mind, and what can be done to support mental health in the workplace.
Please RSVP to Jobs in Mind Chair, Penny Abraham, on firstname.lastname@example.org. Or phone her on 07757 206696.
We very much look forward to seeing you on October 10.
With best wishes,
On behalf of Jobs in Mind
