Weston College to host free online mental health summit

The pandemic has brought uncertainty and disruption to all aspects of people’s lives, with its impact on mental health a critical national concern.

Weston College will be running a free Mental Health Workforce Summit on Wednesday, March 17, from 10 am to 3pm.

The free online conference will hear how Weston College as an Investor in People Platinum, Young Minds Trailblazer, SEND Centre of Excellence and Lloyds Bank Employer of the Year, led by its Principal Dr Paul Phillips CBE, have shaped workforce development to create an organisational culture of positive mental health. 

There will be an informal session with Welsh and 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. 

Principal Dr Paul 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.”  

Limited tickets are available – book your place today here for Weston College to show you how to implement an achievable workforce development strategy to heal your organisation post COVID-19.
