Oakwood delivers mental health training
Last month, Oakwood Training delivered a free workshop on Mental Health in the Workplace for local businesses.
Oakwood Director Gemma Streather said: “The event was really well attended and the feedback was very positive. It was a pleasure to be able to help local businesses understand how to look after the mental health of their employees.”
Overall, attendees felt that the day gave them an excellent insight into mental health. One said: “I feel everything about it was useful. It started a conversation that can be continued back at the workplace and beyond.” Another added: “Learning about the symptoms of mental illness and how they present themselves in a different way on a person-to-person basis was useful.
