Stigma Workshop

Stigma-Free Workplaces

Fostering Stigma-Free Communication — Your Solution for a Positive Workplace Culture

Stigma poses a formidable barrier to addressing mental ill health, preventing individuals from reporting their struggles and hindering the creation of psychologically safe workplaces. This workshop delves into the critical task of confronting and eliminating stigma in the workplace. By tackling this fundamental issue, organisations can establish a safe culture where employees feel secure reporting both personal and work-related concerns.

When stigma persists, employees grappling with mental health challenges endure heightened suffering, disengagement becomes prevalent, innovative potential diminishes, and the overall productivity and safety of the business are compromised.

Join us in reshaping your workplace for a healthier, more engaged, and innovative future.
