Workplace Mental health and stress workshop to be held as part of March for Business month

Stress is one of the biggest causes of staff absence and loss of production.

As part of the Council’s March for Business month, there will be a free online two-hour session to support local business owners and employers on the topic of mental health and stress awareness.

Taking place on Thursday 14 March, from 10am to 12 noon, the event will be hosted by RCS and the interactive session will cover:

  • Defining and understanding mental health and stress.
  • Breaking down stigma.
  • Identifying signs, symptoms, and triggers of poor mental health and stress.
  • Coping strategies.
  • How to support someone (or yourself) experiencing poor mental health and stress.
  • Tips for having good conversations about mental health and stress.

As well as covering these topics, there will also be signposting to further support, if employers feel it is needed.
