Embedding Mental Health Best Practice Conference

28 November 2019     Bristol
We The Curious, One Millennium Square, Bristol BS1 5DB

08:10 – 17:15

St John Ambulance has been at the forefront of the growing awareness that looking after the mental health of employees makes good commercial and ethical sense.  This has been strongly reflected by the attendees of our courses and key partners. We now deliver mental health first aid training nationwide to meet increasing demand for mental health awareness, and we’ve recently conducted wider surveys across the sector with senior level HR and Health & Safety professionals and our course attendees and bookers. There’s been strong interest for dedicated, case study-led conferences.

Highlights of our Bristol programme include:

Putting your employees’ mental health at the heart of your organisation: ROI and developing the business case
Identifying the gaps in your mental health policy: Putting change into action
Development of a Mental Health Toolkit: The phases of implementation
Conducting an internal workplace mental health & wellbeing appraisal
Overcoming barriers to implementation: Making and managing a commitment to change
Mental health and disciplinary processes
Caught in the middle – managers and leaders: key do’s and don’ts – changing performance measures

This is your opportunity to empower staff and help them to be more motivated, happier and ready for the challenges ahead. Find the right mental health approach for your company and break down the stigma to enable open, honest dialogue.

The conferences will provide a chance for the exchange of ideas and authoritative views by leading companies across HR and Health & Safety professionals with an interest in mental health and welfare.

In particular: HR Directors, Heads of Health & Safety, Heads of Workforce Planning, Heads of Workplace Wellbeing, Mental Health Directors, Heads of Diversity & Inclusion

Plus: Managers and Directors of following departments:

Compensation & Benefits, Remuneration & Reward, Employee relations, Talent management, Organisational development, Recruitment, Performance Management, Training and Development, Heads of Employee Engagement, Health and Well-being advisers, Senior management GPs, Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners and Trade Union representatives.

Building on the success of our 2018 flagship conference, we are kicking off our series of regional events in Manchester on Thursday 26th September, followed by our event in Bristol on Thursday 28th November. The CDP registered event will take a step-by-step approach to enable delegates to transform their workplace mental health strategies and support staff at all stages of their mental health journey. These events have been researched with leading health, wellbeing and HR directors.

St John Ambulance has been at the forefront of the growing awareness that looking after the mental health of employees makes good commercial and ethical sense.
