Mental Health Taster Sessions
We appreciate that you’ll want to make sure that Mental Health at Work is the right partner for your organisation, including our approach to workplace mental health and the style of our facilitated workshops. We run regular Taster Sessions on a variety of topics, designed for anyone who is considering a mental health programme in their organisation.
Selection of times over Tuesday January 9th, Friday January 12th or Monday January 15th
“Blue Monday” originated in 2005 from a press release by a travel company who made claims that the third Monday in January is the most depressing day of the year. Despite the lack of scientific validity, it has become a cultural phenomenon and one which organisations see as an opportunity to create awareness and start conversations around mental health. Many colleagues may be experiencing difficulties around this time such as post-holiday blues, financial strain, shorter days and the impact of gloomy weather.
Therefore, this year we are using this date as a platform to address real and common challenges related to mental health and to get the conversation started to help support change in your organisation, not just on Blue Monday but for every day of the year!
We are offering a series of one-hour webinars on specific dates in January to help support organisations to promote understanding of mental health and raise awareness within their workplace.
What will the sessions cover?
In the webinar, we are aiming to improve understanding and awareness around workplace mental health, and the sessions will include:
Busting the myth of Blue Monday
Understanding mental health and the winter blues
Looking after your mental health all year round
Recognising your legal and moral obligations under Duty of Care
Raising awareness of signposting and supportive resources

Thursday January 25th
During this one hour session we will introduce you to what the workplace needs to know about managing mental health as we approach 2024. We will explore some of the current issues impacting wellbeing in the workplace such as burnout, stress and the cost of living, as well as the language around mental health. We will bring insight to the skills which enable all managers to have both confidence and competence to have open and natural conversations about mental health with colleagues. We will explore how you might introduce them within your organisation for anyone who manages mental health as part of their role and the benefits that this can bring.
The WHO recommends that line managers are trained in managing mental health on an annual basis and this session will give you the opportunity to experience the customised approach of the MHaW Manage ® programme. We are delighted that our MHaW Manage® programme is also now CPD accredited, and attendees of a one day workshop will be eligible for 10 CPD points.
This session is aimed at senior leaders and managers in HR, D&I, and Talent Management who are considering beginning or extending their workplace mental health programme to bring behavioural change.
There is a small charge for this event; as a not for profit, social enterprise, our mission is to change working lives, reaching as many people as possible in the workplace to change attitudes and behaviours around mental health. This fee enables us to continue to deliver this mission, whilst bringing frontline developments and considerations around workplace mental health to a broad audience.
