Join Cambridge Network and their partners (The One Group, Young People Potential and MC Works) at their morning focusing on health, wellbeing and mental health in the workplace. 

A recent Government report ‘Thriving at Work’, highlighted that 15% of workers have a mental health condition and 300k people with long-term mental health problems lose their jobs each year, leaving a big impact on the economy as well as the workers affected.

This event is for HR managers and practitioners, and indeed anyone involved in line managing staff, to learn about workplace health, including mental health.

The keynote speaker will be Prof Dame Carol Black, DBE, FRCP, FMedSci, Principal of Newnham College, who will set the context and stress the importance of recognising mental health in the workplace.
