Please join us and forward the registration link to relevant colleagues and teams in your organisation. We look forward to meeting you!

The medical model of mental illness has been the favoured narrative for far too long, however, mental illness isn’t a chemical imbalance, but rather a social phenomenon. Anita Malster, founder of Blossom Mental Health Training, busts some common myths, and helps you gain a better understanding of what leads to poor mental health in your workplace.  Now is the time to be looking at your workplace wellbeing strategies with a critical eye. Are they really changing the culture of your workplace, and creating a mentally healthy environment? As Anita says…“When a plant is struggling to grow you don’t blame the plant – you change the environment to help it thrive. People are no different.”

Audience: Everyone working with the Public

These workshops will not be recorded. Attendees will be asked to provide a testimonial for the website after attending the workshop.
