Conducted by resilientme, those that attended the workshops were trained on stress management and how to recognise wellbeing issues in both themselves, and work colleagues. By the end of the workshop, attendees had a greater understanding of what exactly a stress-induced illness is and how it can lead to mental health issues. It also raised awareness of all six mental health categories, looked at the culture of companies with positive mental health strategies and taught attendees on how to support employees through the disclosure period and afterwards. The sessions finished off by showing the attendees how they can protect themselves and their colleagues from developing issues by looking at resilience techniques and personal wellbeing.
The wellbeing of employees at CML is a top priority for Head of HR, Yvonne Fenwick, as she confirms: “The Mental Health Awareness workshops were a fantastic opportunity for our managers, supervisors and team leaders to receive a thorough run down on stress, mental health, and managing both issues in the workplace. The welfare of our colleagues is of great importance to us, so we are delighted to be able to offer these workshops. Plus, by tackling the stigma of mental health and cultivating a healthy work-life balance, we’re ensuring that we provide a supportive workplace for all of our employees.”
Rachel Munns, Principal and Founder of resilientme, said “I have been working with CML over the last few months training all of their managers, supervisors and team leaders. All attendees were wholeheartedly involved in the workshops and very keen to use their learning to support and develop their teams. CML is committed to ensuring that all managers, supervisors and team leaders receive this training and open up the conversation around mental health to help provide the highest level of support for those who may need it.”
