16th Jan – MHScot Workplace Wellbeing launches “Shade of Blue” to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
MHScot is a unique workplace wellbeing Social Enterprise that understands the needs and aspirations of workplace environments in a very person-centered way.
Poor mental health and wellbeing is one of the biggest public health challenges facing society today. It is the leading cause of sickness absence in the workplace and can cause immense distress to those experiencing it – as well as those closest to them.
Let’s start making a difference and improving the lives of our Scottish workforce including full-time, part-time, fixed-term employees; casual staff, interns, those on apprenticeships, the self-employed, freelancers, contractors, agency and bank staff and volunteers/trustees.
Catherine & June are both very knowledgeable of their subject and being open and flexible to delivery and feedback from participants are able to adapt the workshops to the needs of the participants. Their facilitation skills in delivering a sensitive topic using case studies, small group participation and with a variety of audio visual aids not only helped to deliver a sensitive subject, but their personal touch helped encourage and ensure a safe learning environment.
We were keen to raise awareness of Mental Health wellbeing in the workplace and approached Catherine & June to deliver an awareness session on Mental Health First aid. Catherine and June are very knowledgeable and experienced on the subject of Mental Health. We all found the course really helpful in raising our own awareness of Mental Health wellbeing within the workplace and plan to run further sessions with Catherine & June in the future. We would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to raise awareness of Mental Health wellbeing.
