We held a Mental Health Seminar for members with Dr Munna Roy, Consultant Occupational Physician from Integral Occupational Health on Friday 13 May 2022 from 10.00am to 11.30am via Zoom.  Noted below is some information on what it was about:

The consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic have resulted in increased levels of mental ill health across the population. Employers will have increased numbers of staff who are experiencing common mental health disorders, such as depression and anxiety, even though this was prevalent pre-pandemic.  The vast majority of workers who develop mental ill health have a good prognosis for controlling or resolving their problems but often have not presented for evidence-based help.  Impacts on work are with performance and attendance. Munna talked about common mental disorders and common workplace scenarios.
