Supporting staff with diagnosed mental ill health in the workplace

Diagnosed mental ill health remains one of the final taboos to break in the workplace mental wellbeing conversation, often due to a lack of understanding or misconceptions about the challenges that these employees face. In this panel, we will spotlight a series of inspiring individuals who are living with diagnosed mental ill health, explaining how it impacts their wellbeing experience at work, and showing how employers can create a more mentally supportive and empathetic environment for them to work in.

Putting domestic abuse on the mental wellbeing agenda

In the UK, 1 in 5 adults experiences domestic abuse and in the last year alone, 2.4 million adults were victims (ONS). Increasingly, the workplace is becoming a psychologically safe space for employees who are living through abusive situations, which includes physical, economic and psychological abuse. In this powerful and solutions-focused session, we want to draw upon lived experience to raise awareness of the mental toll that this can take on employees, and highlight how businesses can step in and provide tangible support to these members of staff.

Can employers’ healthcare benefits fill the gap between private and NHS services?

With the NHS overstretched in terms of resource and finance, it's more important than ever for workplaces to offer tangible support to their employees when it comes to supporting their mental health and wellbeing. In this keynote session, we will understand exactly how employers can offer mental healthcare support that helps to fill the gap between employee needs and healthcare waiting time - and what is and isn't within the workplace's remit.

Keynote - AI and mental wellbeing

AI quickly became the most talked about technology trend of 2023, and we are only at the early stages of understanding what we can do - and how it can impact us. Conversation is rapidly growing about how AI and mental wellbeing intersect, and in this future-facing closing session, we will understand the implications that the technology has upon mental health at work - and the key, tangible takeouts that employers need to be aware of.
