The Mental Health Foundation’s Working Well programme provides organisations with the tools to create a culture that enhances and protects people’s mental health. Good mental health leads to better engagement, reduced absenteeism and higher productivity, while improving people’s wellbeing, morale and job satisfaction.

(Module 1) Creating positive environments for mental wellbeing – the what, why and how

Organisations are only as strong as their people, and the culture of an organisation has a significant impact on the wellbeing of employees. A positive workplace culture leads to increased productivity, better employee morale and the ability to retain high quality employees.

This module will provide practical information and tips to help enhance and maintain wellbeing at individual, team, and organisational levels, with a focus on creating organisational/systems change towards a psychologically healthy organisation and culture.

In this module, you’ll gain an understanding of:
  • What is mental health and wellbeing
  • Why it’s important at work
  • How to create a positive work environment for mental wellbeing in the workplace
  • Hands on workshop activities and templates will allow you to start thinking and planning your wellbeing initiative, giving you a solid base to build upon back at work.
The module will support workplaces to explore their health and safety obligations to manage risks and enhance protective factors to mental health and wellbeing.

(Module 2) Enhancing mental wellbeing - Five Ways to Wellbeing at Work

This module will help you introduce mental health and wellbeing into your workplace and focus on promoting positive mental health, using five simple and proven actions.

You’ll find out about the Five Ways (CONNECT, BE ACTIVE, KEEP LEARNING, GIVE and TAKE NOTICE) and how to use them to create organisational/systems change and support people and teams to find balance, build resilience and boost mental health and wellbeing.

In this module, you will gain an understanding of:
  • Mental health and wellbeing, and the things that help people flourish
  • Why it’s important to think about wellbeing at work for both individuals and for the organisation
  • The Five Ways to Wellbeing and how these can improve mental wellbeing and create a positive work environment (and even at home with your whānau)
  • Hands on workshop activities and templates will allow you to start thinking and planning your wellbeing initiative, giving you a solid base to build upon back at work.
You’ll gain the knowledge and confidence to frame and explore the issues within your workplace, plus a comprehensive handbook, slides and notes, to enable you to deliver the workshops in your own organisation, or others you support.

Lunch Provided.
