Free Mental Health training from LTC

To coincide with World Mental Health Day on Wednesday (10th October), the Licensed Trade Charity will be launching two regional ‘Mental Health & Wellbeing In The Workplace’ events for pub and hospitality managers.

This will begin the drive to help pub operators, bars and breweries increase the level of support they can offer staff with mental health issues.

Initial training sessions to be held in London and the Midlands this Autumn will be followed by others around the country in 2019 to ensure industry-wide coverage and increased knowledge of a vital topic. The one-day training sessions will enable attendees to develop a greater knowledge of the most common mental health issues in the workplace, how to best support someone with mental health problems and give managers the confidence to deal with difficult situations that may arise with their staff.

The Licensed Trade Charity’s Charity Services Manager Carolyn Jenkinson said: “Many of the calls we receive from pub and barstaff seeking help involve mental health issues. Whilst in most cases managers are sympathetic to their staff’s problems, they often find it difficult to know what to say or do to help. This breakthrough training for the industry will give managers the confidence to help, making them feel comfortable talking to people who have mental health issues”.

Operators who would like to register their interest in this exciting new initiative, and attend one of the Licensed Trade Charity’s free mental health training events, should contact Carolyn Jenkinson by emailing: carolyn.jenkinson@ltcharity.org.uk.
