Empowering your staff to positively manage their mental health and wellbeing

Tue, 17 Sep 2024

Virtual, Online

This CPD masterclass provides delegates with an essential overview of your role and responsibilities in relation to staff mental health and wellbeing.

“Enabling our diverse NHS people to be healthy with a sense of wellbeing is crucial to high-quality patient care. Putting the health and wellbeing of NHS people first should be a fundamental part of the DNA of the Service, enabling our NHS people to put our patients first.”

Dame Carol Black, Chair of the NHS Expert Advisory Board on Employee Health and Wellbeing

“Staff regularly fed back to us of being overworked, exhausted and stressed, sometimes to the point of becoming ill, injured or leaving their job altogether. They say low staffing levels can affect their ability to provide safe and effective care to people.”......... “Increasing demand and pressures on staff are taking a toll on their mental health and wellbeing. Staff have told us how, without the appropriate support, this is affecting the quality of care they deliver."

Care Quality Commission, The state of health care and adult social care in England 2022/23 October 2023

A recent report shows that health and social care workers are the second most stressed workforce in the UK, with a staggering 56.3% reporting workplace stress. With that, and other mental health conditions on the rise, it is crucial that organisations know how to respond in the instance of staff mental ill-health.

Join us for this one-day masterclass for a complete guide to supporting staff mental health and wellbeing. Our expert speaker will take you through your legal responsibilities as well as looking in detail at how you can support staff with mental ill-health. During the afternoon you will consider the importance of taking proactive steps to support staff and how you can manage the stress in the workplace. You will come away feeling prepared to audit your current practice and put in place an action plan going forward.

During the course of the day, you will have plenty of time to network with colleagues, discuss specific challenges and put your questions to Sam.

This masterclass will enable you to:

  • To understand why working in the caring industry increases the risk of mental health issues

  • To learn how to support staff to prioritise their mental health.

  • To be able to provide effective support and resources for staff who are struggling.

  • To be able to empower staff to effectively manage their own mental health and wellbeing

  • To be able to place emphasis on compassion rather than empathy and why it matters.

  • To have tools to audit current practise and plan for moving forward.
