The BPMA hosted their first regional mental health seminars at Fetcham Park in Surrey and Hotel Football in Manchester in June. The well attended seminars focused on Mental Health within our industry.  Delegates learned the responsibilities of businesses, how to identify and manage Mental Health within the workplace, how to create a robust Mental Health policy and how best to support an individual who has a Mental Health condition.

Jon Birrell, BPMA CEO stated ‘I was very pleased with the support for this initiative and such an important topic. Thanks to all the members who participated on the days’.

Debbie Willsmer from Willsmer Wagg commented – ‘Attended the Mental Health Seminar and found it really useful. Working in a high stress level industry, staff wellbeing needs to be a priority. This is a great start on creating policies, training and understanding as a business owner what our responsibilities are’.

Leah Fitch from Cyan group commented – ‘Fantastic content given by two extremely knowledgeable individuals. Food for thought – I’m excited to help make a difference within our industry, thanks to learning many new ways of dealing with stress, anxiety and depression within the workplace’.
