Mental Health in the Workplace New Initiative Announced


In a fast moving and pressurised world, it has never been more important to bring about positive change in business, public attitudes and behaviour towards people with mental health problems.

This new 5 day programme for HR & Hospitality industry Leaders is a partnership between Conor Kenny & Associates & See Change who areIreland’s national programme working to change minds about mental health problems in Ireland.

The goal of this powerful, real and interactive programme is to create environments where people can be more open and positive in their attitudes and behaviour towards mental health. Where there is a greater understanding and acceptance of people with mental health problems. A greater understanding and knowledge of mental health problems and of health services that provide support for mental health problems and a reduction in the stigma associated with mental health problems and challenge discrimination.

The programme, 5 modules over 5 days, will begin in late March 2018 and conclude in mid May 2018.

Topics covered by mental health experts will include an introduction to mental health in the workplace to support leaders and employees as well as encouraging a new open culture.

Also included is a full day module on taking control of your own mental health and your colleagues too. From there, the programme will guide you and give you the tools to create a new culture and how your business can do this.

Specifically, the programme will focus on depression and anxiety and will finish with an important final module on equality legislation in relation to mental health.

Commenting on this new partnership, John Saunders, Director, See Change said; “Mental health has been an uncomfortable subject at work for far too long. Our mission is to change that in an enduring way. Nobody, and no business, is immune from this and we want to educate the hospitality business on how to create a great culture, a protocol to manage these issues and enable change through education, real stories and by interacting directly with people. To do this, we need to continue to grow our industry expert partners so that our reach is long, deep and meaningful on such an important area of all our lives. We are particularly delighted to partner with Conor Kenny & Associates who have a great passion and reputation for developing people and making sure they can be in the best frame of mind to achieve their potential”

Conor Kenny said:“Without people, no business exists. Hospitality is even more focused than many industries on human interaction. For quite some time, we have had a strong desire to uncover the hidden topic of mental health in the workplace and to play our part in developing new attitudes towards these unseen things. We were absolutely delighted to have discovered See Change and the wonderful work they are doing in this regard. It is a natural partnership and a programme we are not just excited to be running but a programme we are really looking forward to participating in ourselves”

The Programme, 5 modules over 5 days, will begin in late March and conclude in Mid-May, 2018.

The course will be strictly limited and exclusively for hospitality professionals and leaders.
