Doncaster Chamber is aiming to raise awareness of mental health and inspire action to promote the message of good mental health for all.
Throughout Mental Health Awareness Week 2021, which takes place between 10-16 May, the Chamber is holding a series of webinars and events looking at various aspects of mental health.
The week-long calendar of events includes a mixture of free to attend workshops and paid professional training courses.
The hour-long workshops, which include a men’s wellbeing at work session hosted by Men Up North and Dads in Business, and a mindful MOT by Wild Orange are devised to support professionals through periods of high stress and uncertainty.
A half-day session on managing time, stress and workload in the workplace also takes place, where delegates will learn about work-life balance and how to respond to unrealistic expectations.
Events Executive and the week’s coordinator Rebecca Nightingale said, “The pandemic has affected all of our lives so open conversations about mental health are more important than ever.
“The events that the Chamber and its members are hosting will support Chamber members and the wider business community by providing an environment and opportunities that encourage them to lead healthy lives and enable them to make choices that support their mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
“We’re supporting Mental Health Awareness week to start conversations and end the stigma that can exist in the workplace. A small conversation about mental health has the power to make a big difference.”
