Registrations are now open for Promoting Mental Wellbeing with a presenter from Lifeline. The webinar will explore how individuals can promote their own mental wellbeing and support the mental wellbeing of others.


PROMOTING MENTAL WELLBEING

This webinar will explore how individuals can promote their own mental wellbeing and support the mental wellbeing of others. We will briefly cover what we mean by mental wellbeing, and why it’s important – it‘s more than the absence of mental illness. We will look at self care, what strategies and behaviours we can put in place for ourselves to build our personal mental resilience and wellbeing, and we will touch briefly on how to support others who may be vulnerable or at risk of mental ill health. You will leave the webinar with an insight into the concepts surrounding mental wellbeing, and some techniques you can apply straight away to build your own wellbeing and resilience.

With October being Mental Health Month, this webinar is open to all members and non-members.
