The Young Talent Network was delighted to partner with Hull & East Yorkshire Mind for its latest personal development event - workplace mental health training. The training was delivered interactively with practical exercises, participation from attendees and the opportunity for questions and discussion, using Mentimeter, by Yvonne Sharp, a fully-qualified Mind trainer.

According to Mind, one in six people will experience a mental health problem at work in any given week. Often, the people they are surrounded by will have no idea. If they do, they may not know how to help. The partnership with HEY Mind for this event placed mental health at the forefront, reminding employees and employers of the importance of wellbeing in the workplace.
