Workshop: Return to Work

Halifax Hall/The Edge, Sheffield

The issue of work and mental health has been continually rising up the agenda of employers. Mental health (e.g. depression, anxiety, stress-related problems) is the leading cause of sickness in the UK and more needs to be done to help people stay well at work.

These free workshops run by The University of Sheffield Management School, South Yorkshire Housing Association and the Department for Work and Pensions will help you to understand how you can transform your back-to-work support for employees with mental health problems and help them to stay in work. The workshops will be interactive and include direct expert input, group discussions, questions and answers, and trying out solutions, including recently developed toolkits that SMEs can use to develop practical strategies for supporting employees
