A FREE online session for staff & volunteers from Community & Voluntary sector organisations or groups in Chesterfield and/or students based at St Helena’s Campus Chesterfield.

The current coronavirus (COVID-19) has created a time of uncertainty and concern that is affecting people’s mental health. It is essential that individuals have the tools to manage their mental health and wellbeing and to feel able to support others too. Therefore, the University of Derby Online Learning Department has developed a mental health toolkit webinar, to assist employers and employees.

Good health and wellbeing are highlighted in the United Nation’s sustainable development goals. However good wellbeing cannot be achieved without good self-care, as identified in the University of Derby’s research.

This course will introduce;

1. The current state of mental health in the workplace

2. Research findings

3. Importance of self-care

4. Exercises that can be practiced by busy workers in their workplace.
