MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS IN THE WORKPLACE
FREE courses designed to help Improve the awareness and support of mental health in business
The wellbeing of our staff is essential to the success of our business.
Understanding more about mental health, and creating a mental health aware business or workplace, is a crucial step for any business.
Rotary SW Pensinsular are funding The Fox Project and the Kernow Communities to provide two courses for individual businesses to enable them to understand mental health and to identify the actions they can take to create to increase the wellbeing of their staff.
Our free mental health awareness courses can help this understanding.
We all have mental health. The Awareness course helps us to understand that how we are feeling at anyone time affects our ability to do our job and so how our staff are feeling can also affect their job performance
The implementation course allows a company to explore with its staff the factors that are important to their wellbeing and to identify an action plan that reinforces these factors.
Watch our short video where our course provider Amy discusses what the courses cover and what you can get from them.

Rotary in the South West are a group of Rotarians from a variety of local clubs who have come together for this project, which is designed to offer fully-funded Mental Health Awareness in Business courses throughout Cornwall and Plymouth.

These courses have been running for 18 months, face to face or by Zoom and have attracted over 200 people. They are all free and will be run for individual companies to the end of this year
