WESTON College is holding a free mental health ‘workforce summit’ next week in conjunction with Bridgwater Chamber of Commerce.
The event is being held online on Wednesday (March 17) from 10am to 3pm.
A college spokesperson said: “The pandemic has brought uncertainty and disruption to all aspects of people’s lives, with its impact on mental health a critical national concern.
“Attend this free online conference and hear how Weston College, led by its Principal Dr Paul Phillips CBE, have shaped workforce development to create an organisational culture of positive mental health.”
Dr Phillips said: “It occurred to me that everyone knows what the issue is, so I wanted to create an event that focused on a solution to benefit all organisations.
“We are bringing together leading mental health innovations and best practice to equip you with the understanding, skills and confidence to support good mental health and wellbeing for your workforce during these difficult times.
“Take away helpful tips and an easy to implement blueprint to help all organisations repair the mental health damage that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused.”
The day will also include an informal session with International rugby referee Nigel Owen, discussing his own mental health struggles and self-help strategies, as well as hearing from the inspirational Nick Elston on tackling anxiety.
