    • Claire Russell, Mental Health in Business

Since early 2020, we have collectively been living through an extraordinarily stressful time – most people have been coping with unforeseen change and challenges, uncertainty, anxiety and worry.

Many people have had their businesses hugely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, many have lost their jobs, been adapting to working at home, coping with isolation and home-schooling children who may themselves be struggling emotionally. Sadly, many people have been bereaved during the pandemic and, like many people with existing physical or mental health conditions - may not have been able to access the support needed.

We all experience stress to some degree – some might say that some stress is healthy or helpful, because it motivates us and keeps us moving.

However – there is considerable evidence that suggests that high levels of persistent stress at work can lead to mental ill-health and contribute to serious physical ill-health or even burnout.

During this workshop, participants will learn about the effects of stress, how to manage stress, the link between burnout and mental health and how to avoid burnout.

The session will involve interactive discussions and group exercises which are specially designed to ensure effective learning in a short timeframe within an online environment.
