We are delighted to announce a new event next month. Called TGI Febrewary this event is designed to get everyone together for a hot brew and a slice of something tasty!
On the first Friday in February, in conjunction with Mental Health Matters, St James' Square are hosting an informal get together at The Teahouse in Newcastle. Called TGI Febrewary, and taking place on February 7th, the aim of the event is to celebrate the end of January, with a focus on mental health in the workplace.
Jackie Turner, Partner and Head of Employment and HR at St James Square said, “The beginning of the year can be especially difficult for some people. We wanted to host an event that got people talking about mental health and be able to take away some knowledge that could potentially make a difference in someone’s life. We are delighted to be joined by Mental Health Matters who do such a fantastic job helping people achieve good physical and mental wellbeing.”
Mental Health Matters is a nationwide charity that provides a wide range of support to people with mental health needs. Support ranges from helplines and 'talking therapies' to supported housing and safe havens, and all based on the principle of supporting every person, as an individual, towards their own goals and aspirations.
Claire Hall, Learning & Development Manager with the charity said, “Prevention and early intervention are the most effective ways to support workforce mental health. The more it is discussed the easier it will be to ensure that the right help is given to those that need it.”
The informal get together will give out some handy tips on how to take better care of ourselves and ideas on how we can support colleagues in relation to mental health. The event is aimed at anyone wishing to know more about mental health in the workplace, and in particular, HR Managers/Leaders and anyone with a responsibility for managing staff.
The Teahouse, who are clients of St James’ Square, will be serving a range of delicious beverages and treats to make the event even more relaxed and enjoyable.
The event is free to attend but registration is essential so that we can monitor numbers. Places are limited and are on a first come first served basis.
