Mental health month

HQN’s mental health series is the ideal opportunity for you to get up to speed with everything to do with mental health and stay up to date with best practice.

Mental health month

Join us for our mental health month, four bitesize sessions on, making time for you, work life balance, wellbeing of tenants, customers and staff.

Book all sessions here.

Mental health month session 1

Workshop one: Mental health MOT – Making time for, and the importance of you
Monday 9 May 2022  |  14:00pm – 15:30pm 

This interactive session will give you exactly that. Time. Time to focus on the most important thing in your life – you. Don’t for one second think this is selfish. This is a concept so many people struggle with – that and guilt. Thinking about yourself, what you want, and what you need, is why you’re here. 

Mental health month session 2

Workshop two: Work life balance, training development and time
Monday 16 May 2022  |  14:00pm – 15:30pm
 

How do you divide your time and focus between working and family and/or leisure activities? You’d be surprised how many people never think about this, ironically, because they’re too busy. But simply, if you don’t have any balance, one or both aspects of your life will suffer. They won’t be going how you want them to. Book now.

Mental health month session 3

Workshop three: Mental health and wellbeing (Tenants and customers)
Tuesday 24 May 2022  |  16:00pm – 17:30pm 

There is a large body of research that connects the effects of poor mental health to housing related risks and problems. When a tenant has poor mental health, this can impact on their ability to maintain their property, pay bills, allow access to the property, engage in support, get on with neighbours and maintain a problem free tenancy. Book now.

Mental health month session 4

Workshop four: The mental health and wellbeing of staff – effective stress management
Tuesday 31 May 2022  |  10:30am – 12pm
 

Negative stress can impact on any of us. Mental health and wellbeing of staff should always be an important consideration for employers and employees alike.  However, its more essential than ever in 2022 – having gone through a pandemic, having had to deal with some of the most challenging times ever faced in housing and care. Book now.
