Webinar: Mental Health Awareness

Past Event

Mon, 20 January 2020

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Mental health is something we all possess. When it is good, we have a sense of purpose and direction and feel that we can cope with whatever life (and work) throws at us. 

But just as our physical health fluctuates, so too our mental health goes through ups and downs. Raising awareness of potential mental health issues is part of fostering an inclusive workplace, where people feel able to bring their whole selves to work. 

We all have tough times when we feel low, stressed or frightened. Usually, those feelings pass, but sometimes they develop into more complex, long-term mental health conditions. 

During this webinar, Vicki Beers of the Farming Community Network will discuss how we can widen awareness of mental health for those working in and with the agriculture and horticulture sectors. We’ll also hear from NFU member and County Chair for Lancashire, Olly Harrison, about the work being done to break down the barriers around mental health.

We will cover:

  • Recognising the signs of mental health in self and others

  • How to start a conversation about mental health

  • Explain some ways of supporting others with mental health

  • Share some real-life experiences

  • Accessing support available from other organisations
