MCR Group is very pleased to have partnered with Aware, who delivered a one-hour information session on how to look after your mental health to our staff. The webinar incorporated key skills based on the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and was developed under the guidance of Aware’s clinical team. It is designed for everyone in the workplace and aims to increase attendee knowledge of the need for, and benefits of, wellness in the workplace.

This webinar should allow employees to:

  • Identify the warning signs and symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder.
  • Describe and apply basic cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) principles to workplace circumstances.
  • Recognise principles for coping and achieving good mental health.

The content aims to help increase attendee’s knowledge of stress, anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder symptoms. It describes coping mechanisms based on the principles of CBT and provide the opportunity to apply these principles using typical work-based scenarios to demonstrate how to cope more effectively. Overall, the session increases the awareness of mental health in the workplace.

This webinar was delivered on Friday 3rd March to our head office staff and our site-based employees. It is also available to our staff through our eLearning platform.
