With awareness of mental health on the rise, the BPMA has organised two regional mental health seminars to help drive awareness and support within the industry.

The sessions are being ran by employment lawyer and mental health advocate Jodie Hill alongside Dr Sarah Hattam who has a special interest in mental health and wellbeing having previously worked in psychiatry.

The main topics for discussion will be around how to improve mental health and identify potential issues within your organisation:

•  Implementing a positive mental health policy in your organisation
•  When the warning lights come on – how to identify a colleague in difficulty and confidently initiate a supportive conversation
•  Reasonable adjustments, what are they and when do they arise
•  When does a mental health condition become a disability under the Equality Act and what we should be doing when we know this

These industry specific seminars are open to all, however new to the industry you may be. For more information on the mental health seminars, including bookings, see www.bpma.co.uk/events or contact daniel.symonds@bpma.co.uk
