Hi there SANE community 👋
This fortnight we will be welcoming one of SANE's Peer Ambassadors talking about their experiences of Employment and Mental Health.
For those who recently attended the Peer Group Chat, this discussion will be building on some of the discussions that were had there!
Employment and Mental Health
Employment and work when living with complex mental health concerns can be a big part of recovery and wellbeing for many people. But, for many others there are barriers to finding mentally healthy workplaces. Looking after our wellbeing at work and maintaining a work life balance are important aspects of supporting our overall wellbeing.
Disclosing lived experience in the workplace
Disclosing lived experience can be a big step in the workplace. The response from employers and colleagues when we disclose lived experience or caring responsibilies can have a big toll on wellbeing. So, how can we empower ourselves to have crucial conversations about wellbeing in the workplace? How can we find allies who will support us? And how can we identify mentally healthy workplaces?
This discussion might help to prepare you to enter the workforce in future, support you to have conversations about mental health in your workplace, find an ally and explore mentally healthy workplace cultures.
Please join us here on Tuesday the 8th of June 2021 from 7:00pm-8:30pm AEST to follow this conversation.
