Join us in London this month for our first StRaW (Sustaining Resilience at Work) All Comers course! The two-day course takes place on 28 & 29 June 2016, near Waterloo Station in London.
In case you aren’t familiar with the course, StRaW is a peer support programme that focuses on occupational stress and common mental health problems. It aims to foster a more resilient workforce by encouraging people to speak to each other about mental health problems.More information and booking details available here.
Hot on the heels of StRaW all comers; we are back in London for TRiM all comers courses in July:
4-5 July 2016: TRiM Practitioner training
6-7 July 2016: TRiM Manager training
Don’t forget that if it’s been a little while since you were trained, you may be due a refresher to stay in date as a TRiM Practitioner or TRiM Manager – you can refresh by attending day one of the TRiM all comers (Practitioner course for Practitioner refresher or Manager course for Manager refresher).Click here for more information and booking details .
With the theme of ‘relationships’ for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week – which took place in May – Professor Greenberg wrote about the importance of relationships in the workplace for good mental health, particularly between managers/leaders and their staff. Click here to read his post.
The report into the Germanwings air tragedy has been published and endorses earlier taskforce findings to recommend peer support and improved psychological monitoring in the airline industry.
Here at March on Stress we have seen increased interest in TRiM from some air industry organisations and we hope the recommendations will encourage the wider industry to continue to support their people and reduce stigma to encourage help seeking with workplace mental health support, policy and training. Read the report and recommendations here.
The March on Stress team is delighted to welcome new Clinical Director, Dr Karla Greenberg. Karla is a consultant psychiatrist and has more than 15 years’ experience in the NHS. She will head up our clinical services section which continues to provide a range of therapy, assessment and interventions to clients. To discuss clinical options for your organisation, please get in touch with us at email@example.com
The Invictus Games took place in early May, and as well as inspiring us through brave displays of physical achievement, the Games helped to shine a spotlight on mental health and the ‘invisible wounds’ that affect so many.
Our own Professor Neil Greenberg had the honour of speaking on the expert panel at the Invisible Wounds symposium at the Games, with Prince Harry and Former President George W Bush in attendance. He highlighted the effects mental health issues can have and how we can help to support not just service and ex service personnel but our friends, family and colleagues who may be suffering.
Our Australian associates have been busy working with the mining industry in Western Australia, and Professor Greenberg flew out to join them at some TRiM and StRaW forums recently, with Western Australia Mental Health Commissioner Tim Marney also present. Work in the mining industry often means high risk and safety critical roles, away from family and friends on ‘fly in out, fly out’ rotations in remote parts of the country – so it’s clear to see why supporting staff is so important and great to have so many organisations in attendance that share our vision. We look forward to heading down under again soon to deliver training.
We have a list of upcoming events which may be of interest and provide good CPD opportunities. Please click here to view.
