    On World Mental Health Day, join us to explore how you can futureproof your workplace by recognising the signs that people are struggling with stress or mental ill health at work. With Where, How and When we work changing rapidly due to social and technological advances, people can struggle to keep up. The pressures of our 24/7 online culture also take their toll and employers have a responsibility to look out for and invest in their employees when it comes to good mental health. This workshop will explore how you can identify potential problems at an early stage and give you tools to avoid a workforce mental health crisis.
