To recognise Blue Monday, we are pleased to be collaborating with Imagine Independence, local mental health charity.
On Monday, 18 January join us to hear from Ant Dowell, Campaigns and Partnership Officer for the charity, about how to support the mental wellbeing of your staff, especially in these testing times.
Later that day, Imagine Independence will facilitate a drop-in session where private appointments can also be made for anyone to discuss concerns in private.
