Healthy and Ethical Workplaces Open Day
As part of Ethical Reading’s Healthy and Ethical workplaces programme, they are delighted to invite you to a Support Services Open day at Green Park focusing on mental health and well-being. Several well-being services will be on hand to provide information about mental health awareness and there will also be speakers who have had personal experiences of overcoming mental health issues.
Attendees can go to stalls and ask questions about mental health, how it impacts relationships at workplace and society as a whole. The theme of the event:
How can organisations help to protect people’s mental health in a changing world?
From rapid globalisation to the gig economy, work takes up a significant part of people’s lives. In order to increase productivity rates, workers must be physically and mentally healthy. It’s important to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and the stallholders and speakers present at this event will be very much focused on doing just that.
Stallholders will include:
- Compass Recovery College
- Berkshire Health Foundation Trust
- Berkshire West Your Way
- Federation of Small Businesses
- Balance Time Mindfulness
- The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS)
- Multiple Agencies for Reading Mental Health
- Hand Massage
- Brighter Berkshire
- IRIS Partnership
- Clarks Legal
From 11.30am to 2.30pm, attendees can visit the stalls in the atrium of 100 Longwater Avenue at Green Park and find out more about mental health issues. Throughout the Open Day, in an area close by – The Hive – will have speakers giving brief talks on mental health topics.
What you will learn:
There will be exhibitions about mindfulness at work, meditation to relieve stress, improving workplace relations and productivity. There will be an Arts and Craft group work stall. Some of our speakers will speak about their personal experience with mental health problems and how they overcame these barriers.
Ethical Reading would like to acknowledge the support of our Partners, Green Park and Mapletree, in hosting this event.
