About this event

Date: Thursday 8th June 2023

Time: 1pm - 4pm

Venue: Hull College

Bondholders is delighted to partner with local leading mental health charity Hull and East Yorkshire Mind for a free session to equip attendees with vital mental health awareness training to take back to their workplace.

Part of the Bondholders' Talent + programme, the session will help to create Mental Health Champions in businesses across the region. The training, which is delivered by a qualified and experienced Hull and East Yorkshire Mind trainer, will provide attendees with the key skills and knowledge to challenge stigma and encourage positive mental health culture in their place of work. Mental Health Champions are not qualified mental health or HR professionals, but are able to promote a positive mental health at work experience for everyone.

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.

Without training, such as that offered by Hull and East Yorkshire Mind, it can be difficult to know where to start. Event attendees will leave with increased awareness and understanding of mental health and wellbeing, particularly mental health in the workplace. In addition to techniques to help make those difficult conversations easier, this session will allow attendees to go back to their organisation able to promote wellbeing, with a greater understanding of the needs and feelings of those around them.

Training will be delivered interactively with practical exercises, participation from attendees and the opportunity for questions and discussion, using Mentimeter.

Everyone who completes the training will receive endorsement from Hull and East Yorkshire Mind, including a certificate and badge.

Benefits of the session:

• Improve understanding and awareness of the role and skills of Mental Health Champions

• Be more confident to start mental health conversations at work

• Gain knowledge of signposting and support options

• Become aware of opportunities and solutions for wellbeing activities

• Reflect on the importance of self-care in the role of Mental Health Champion

What’s included in the session?

• What mental health is and how to challenge stigma

• A basic knowledge of some common mental health problems

• An introduction to looking after your own mental health and maintaining wellbeing

• Confidence to support someone in distress or who may be experiencing poor mental health
