The State of the Nation’s Mental Health – Mental Health Awareness Week’s Must Attend Webinar

This May, Mental Health Awareness Week is more significant than ever. It’s an opportunity for us to take stock, reflect on the real implications of the pandemic and understand what’s needed for progressive employers to stay ahead of the diverse and evolving wellbeing needs of their workforce.

There are lots of statistics flying around. But what actually has been the impact of the pandemic and how do employers need to prepare?

Employers who want to cut through the noise, understand the realities of how the pandemic has impacted the mental health of colleagues – and how they need to prepare to provide appropriate support moving forwards – can register for a free to attend interactive webinar: “The State of the Nation’s Mental Health: what employers need to know to be prepared”.

This will take place during Mental Health Awareness Week on Thursday 13th May from 10.30am – 11.45am. Make A Difference Media is producing the webinar with the kind support of Kooth plc.

What employers need to know

For this interactive webinar, drawing on data from over 170K active users of Kooth plc’s integrative digital mental health platform, the Rt Hon Sir Norman Lamb will first set the scene with an overview of key insights from the State of the Nation 2021 – Voices of Kooth report.

He’ll then open to discussion, drawing on perspectives from the panel of wellbeing leaders to explore:

  • Ways to realistically meet individual wellbeing needs in the new hybrid world of work
  • How you overcome “them and us” tensions between those working in different environments
  • Preparing to meet the wellbeing needs of the next generation transitioning to the workforce
  • Approaches to ensuring mental health and wellbeing support mechanisms are future-pandemic-proof

The content is designed to get to the heart of the information needs of CEOs, COOs, CFOs, CHROs and Chief Medical Officers who are making decisions about investment in supporting the mental health and wellbeing of employees.

It’s also highly relevant for Wellbeing Leaders, HR, Talent and Benefits professionals, Business Transformation Leaders, as well as workplace mental health and wellbeing champions.

In other words, anyone, from any type or size of organisation, who cares about how the pandemic has impacted the mental health of their employees, members or customers and what they need to do to be prepared.
