The Licensed Trade Charity has revealed the latest schedule of mental health training sessions available to those within the industry, and is urging pubcos and managers to get involved in the project to help widen awareness of mental health issues within the drinks trade.
The free sessions have already been attended by managers from some of the biggest pubcos in the country, with Fuller’s, Mitchells & Butlers and Stonegate having also provided venues as well as attending. The workshops are designed to help managers spot the warning signs of mental health issues among their workforce, while teaching them how to deal with problems. The next set of events will take place as follows:
· Tuesday, March 19, Manchester
· Tuesday, April 16, Bristol
· Tuesday, May 14, Kent
· Tuesday, June 18, venue to be confirmed
· Tuesday, July 16, London
· Tuesday, August 13, Nottingham
The unique training courses are being run in conjunction with the Worshipful Company of Innholders, who are sponsoring the initiative until 2021 to ensure the industry reinforces best practice in how to support someone with mental health problems and give managers the confidence to deal with difficult situations that may arise. Places are available at each of the training sessions listed and you can register your interest online.
Charity services manager, Carolyn Jenkinson, said: “We are really excited to reveal the next six months of industry training having successfully launched in London and Birmingham already. The sessions will give managers vital assistance in equipping themselves with knowledge and confidence to deal with staff who are struggling with their mental health”.
