Joint sole practitioners' networking meeting

In collaboration with See Me, we are working to support mentally healthy workplaces within our membership. The workplace is one of the key areas where people face stigma and discrimination. We want to change our workplace culture around mental health so all staff feel confident enough to speak about how they are feeling and can ask for help if they need it, without the fear that they will be stigmatised and discriminated against. This session will provide the opportunity to explore stigma and discrimination and the steps that can be taken to create mentally healthy workplaces. This event will provide an opportunity to hear more about our partnership with See Me, and how you can be part of this movement for change.
