Recent research reported over 30% of accountants suffering from mental health issues and 51% admitting that depression and anxiety leave them dreading going to work. With more than half of all days lost to ill health accounted for by work-related stress, depression or anxiety, it’s in everyone’s interest to talk openly about and address mental wellbeing in the workplace. That’s the only way to ensure that we enjoy our work and can help our colleagues do the same.

This course highlights practical ways to help us maintain our mental health and identify risk factors, and it offers solutions for coping when we feel low.

It also explores the relationship between mental wellbeing, workplace demands, and the way we interact with those around us. It provides guidance on how to create a happy and accepting work environment.

This course will enable you to:

  • understand the mental wellbeing issues affecting the accounting sector
  • maintain your own mental wellbeing, and help others do the same
  • recognise signs of burnout in you and in your colleagues
  • appreciate the importance of physical health in maintaining mental health
  • help create a happy and accepting work environment.
