This training is designed to help people be well equipped to have supportive mental health conversations in the workplace.

About this event

This session is open to all those working in health, social care, the voluntary sector or not-for-profit sector in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

Suicide Prevention Day is on 10th September. To mark this day we are providing REACT Mental Health Conversation training, because there is strong evidence that psychologically savvy supervisors play a critical role in supporting the mental health of team members.

REACTMH can be used to have a difficult conversation with a colleague who may not appreciate they are struggling or know they are but might not want to or be able seek help. This approach is especially useful for colleagues who are dealing with repeated exposure to potentially traumatic events (PTEs).

This will provide a useful set of skills including:

  • how to have a guided conversation with a colleague
  • be better placed to identify whether there is an urgent need for support and whether there is a risk to a colleague or others continuing without any support
  • factors to discuss during the conversation, having a measure of the impact and effect on a colleague
    what to look out for in self and colleagues during these extremely testing times.

Who is it for?

Anyone who wants to improve their knowledge and skills in having psychologically savvy conversations.
