The tech sector is renowned for high-stress and fast pace, but is this taking a toll on our mental health? How do we protect our teams - and ourselves - while still getting the job done?
In this presentation you and your team will:
Learn the difference between mental health, mental illness, and stress
Understand why well-being and mental health in the workplace is important.
Identify signs of stress and being overwhelmed using the cognitive-behavioral model of stress
Recognise the importance of recovery for well-being, mental health, and performance, and
Discuss how to practically implement some of these strategies.
Resilience and mental health aren't just jargon - they're key to both a safe work environment and performing at your best. Ignore them at your peril.
Mental Wellness in the Workplace expert Dr. Karen Jones will outline how to protect you and your team's mental health and build resilience. As well as real-world stories, Karen's talk will include practical solutions, best practice guidelines and strategies for creating a psychologically safe workplace and protecting your own mental health.
ITP is funding these sessions with a clinical psychologist to promote resilience and mental wellness in the tech sector. Bring your team. This talk is absolutely not to be missed.
Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity for networking over light refreshments.
