Our first session took place on 26th of January and it was certainly time well spent. We had great discussions, training session, shared what challenges we face and supported each other by offering alternative points of view and practical tips on approaching challenges. 

We also all took a break by participating in mini mindfulness session... for us, Mental Health Champions, it's crucial to lead by example and embody what we preach!  

MHCC April 2022

During second session in April 2022 we were inspired by some great initiatives our members are heading up in their workplaces and had many resourceful discussions on practical ways to support mental health in the workplace.

Our training session was on stress awareness.

Stress is body's innate reaction to feeling threatened or under pressure; it's Mother Nature's gift to ensure our chances of survival or maximised. However if stress remains unresolved over prolonged period of time it could make us ill as our body-mind system does not get a chance to rebalance. We looked into how stress can manifest in our lives (the obvious and not so obvious indicators) and what to do to maintain our body-mind systems in optimal shape.  

Save the date!

Our third event will take place on in July 2022 (dates to be confirmed)  at our offices in Doncaster Mind (Exchange Buildings | Second Floor | 35 Market Place | Doncaster | DN1 1NE).
