THE Swindon branch of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development will host an awareness session at New College in March for its local membership on the issues of mental health in the workplace.

Organised in association with the Swindon Mindful Employer Network the event looks at managing stress at work, identifying stress in ourselves and colleagues and explores the benefits of being a mindful employer.

Guest speakers include Melanie Richens, Chair of the Swindon Mindful Employer Network, and Geoff Windle of Lift Psychology.

David Latham who manages the Swindon Mindful Employer Network at the Richmond Fellowship said: “We realise that mental health – particularly stress – is of growing concern to the business community”.
