A free webinar from IP Inclusive and the IPO
Thursday 2 December 2021
12 – 1 pm
Please join Euros Morris from the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) and the IP Inclusive mental health first aiders’ network, to talk about the role of the mental health first aider (MHFAer) and how they and their colleagues can support one another without the role becoming a burden.
Euros will share his experience of being a MHFAer at the IPO, and explore:
- How the MHFA role has developed since inception
- What has (and hasn’t) worked
- How MHFAers are being promoted
- Issues regarding blurred colleague/MHFAer boundaries
- Balancing MHFA with core duties
- Following up on MHFAer interventions
along with many other useful hints and tips.
We’d like this to be an interactive session, to allow IP sector MHFAers to inspire and learn from one another, so there will also be a chance to discuss the issues with other MHFAers from the IP Inclusive network following Euros’s talk. Because of the sensitive nature of the topics, we will not be recording this event.
The discussions will be chaired by Jen Unsworth (HGF), also from our MHFAers’ network.
This event is designed for trained MHFAers, or those who are considering undertaking the MHFA training. It doesn’t matter what type of organisation you work in, what role you play in it or what your career level (so long as it’s in the UK IP sector of course).
Please sign up using the Eventbrite link above (top right). If you would prefer not to use Eventbrite, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to help.
This event is free. So are all our resources. We think it’s important to keep IP Inclusive the right side of the paywall.
That said, we do need money to keep the show on the road, so if you enjoy the event please consider contributing to our 2021-22 fundraising campaign.
