CII Glasgow Mental Health Webinar: Managing Anxiety Through Times of Change

Thursday, 19 May 2022
11:00 am – 12:00 pm (UK time)
    • Clare Russell, CEO, Mental Health in Business

Following Mental Health Awareness Week, the Glasgow CII Professional Development Group is delighted to have a follow up session with Claire Russell, CEO of Mental Health in Business.

A number of factors contribute to a person experiencing good mental health and well-being from day to day.

Being calm and clear-headed at work are signs of good mental health; which result in good performance, job satisfaction and a happier workforce.

But what happens if employees are experiencing the opposite of calmness and clarity?

This can be a sign that employees are experiencing high levels of stress, anxiety and overwhelm which if left unchecked (and unsupported) could result in serious ill-health, poor performance, and sickness absence.

This 1 hour webinar will explore anxiety, what it is, how and why it shows up in the workplace and what can be done to reduce the impact of anxiety on well-being and performance.

Learning Objectives:

- To help attendees to understand the relationship between anxiety and well-being

- To give attendees some practical ways to manage anxiety

- To help attendees to reduce the impact of anxiety and improve well-being
