I’m really looking forward to sharing my views and to discussing key issues and themes, which have come to light in relation to work place stress and mental health, with the ELA on Friday.
Tune into the virtual event (details below) from 12pm (GMT) to hear my thoughts on how to create a healthy workplace culture and what organisations can do to minimise the risk of stress turning into psychiatric illness.
I will be in conversation with Carole Spiers from the International Stress Management Association and Founder of International Stress Awareness Week, and Peter Linstead from Outer Temple Chambers.
Work related stress and mental illness is now responsible, nationally, for more than half of absenteeism. One impact of the coronavirus pandemic has been an increased incidence of mental health issues for some employees as a result of sustained high levels of work, a significant setback or perceived unfair treatment.
