Mental Health in the workplace is a 2-part masterclass on promoting mental health and well-being within our organizations. The last year has made it imperative for communities and organizations worldwide to recognize, understand and respond to the mental health needs of the self and others. This masterclass will encourage participants to reflect on personal beliefs and ideas about mental health and empower them with knowledge and skills to care for themselves and their peers and colleagues. By drawing from personal experiences of participants and research, the masterclass will sensitize participants to understand unique stressors in the professional field, their impact on mental health, and a wide range of mental health needs within the workplace. Through practical exercises and activities, participants will not only learn about ways to care for themselves but also about ways to create a mental health-affirming work culture.
