Each month, the Collaborative will be highlighting workforce development opportunities on key population health themes as part of our workforce development programme.
To link in with National Stress Awareness Day on Wednesday 2nd November 2022, this month we look at training opportunities for reducing stress and supporting mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
Businesses and organisations function best when their employees are happy and healthy – that’s why supporting employees’ mental health and wellbeing in the workplace is so important.
