Mental Resilience: The Future of Work and Education

As part of the Chamber’s ongoing recognition of the importance and opportunities of inclusion in the workplace, in recent years we have been addressing mental health issues through both content and events. Specifically, how they may impact your employees and colleagues, and how to identify the often subtle signs that somebody may need support.
 
In this panel discussion, we will be addressing a range of mental health topics relevant to working and educational professionals today and for tomorrow’s generations, including the importance of early recognition and engagement, issues around isolation, and action points, with a discussion incorporating expertise from mental health professionals and corporate responsibility practitioners.
 
Join the conversation and help to support your employees, peers and friends by increasing your awareness on this important topic.

It also aspires to foster synergy among the various peer helping and mental health initiatives in the respective Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs - Universities, Polytechnics, Institute of Technical Education) through dialogues and focus group discussions.
