What are wellbeing lunches?

Support your own staff to stay mentally well through our interactive and informative working lunches. We will come to your workplace and deliver an informal one hour workshop covering one of many topics – why not pick and mix over the year with regular lunches?

 

How can wellbeing lunches help our business?

Organisations perform better when their staff are healthy, motivated and focused. Poor mental health is the number one reason for staff absence. Workplace wellbeing training is a cost-effective way to promote mental wellbeing within your organisation which can help to reduce absenteeism, presenteeism and long term sickness. Poor mental wellbeing is estimated to cost employers £33 to £42 billion each year.

 

How much does a wellbeing lunch cost?

Our workshops are available starting from as little as £100.

 

Anxiety

Would you like to learn more about anxiety and why we experience it? Most levels of anxiety are normal, but what happens when we are experiencing anxiety all the time?

 

Our wellbeing lunch will develop your knowledge surrounding anxiety, including looking at some of the causes. By understanding what can trigger anxiety, you can learn how to support those going through it. We will also explore some techniques to help manage anxiety which can be used in our personal and professional lives.

Psychosis

Would you know the signs that someone is experiencing a psychotic episode? Our wellbeing lunch is designed to develop your knowledge of the stigma surrounding psychosis and explores how psychosis can lead to other mental health conditions such as schizophrenia and bipolar.

Suicide and Self-Harm Awareness

Suicide is the leading cause of death among young people aged 20-34 in the UK.

 

Explore the myths, causes and warning signs of suicide. Develop your own knowledge of why people experience mental distress, and the conditions that can lead to suicidal ideation and someone taking their own life. To many of us self-harm is a sensitive subject. When we remove the myths and misunderstanding surround self-harm we can learn how to support those who are engaging in self-harming behaviours in a non-judgemental way. Develop practical strategies to boost resilience which will enable you to provide effective support to those who need it.

Anxiety Disorders

Develop your knowledge of different anxiety disorders including Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Eating Disorders and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. Develop you understanding of how these conditions can effect someone day-to-day and what signs and symptoms might be present in someone experiencing an anxiety disorder.

Stress and Mindfulness

Would you like to develop your resilience? Learn how to increase our resilience levels by minimising our stress and increasing our mindfulness skills. This wellbeing lunch will help learners better understand and manage their own stress. Develop an understanding of what stress is and how this can manifest itself in physical and emotional symptoms.

 

Explore the causes of stress and why people are affected in different way. Identify factors that can trigger a period of poor mental health and use resources, tools and activities to stay well and help prevent stress, including developing a personal plan to manage our own stress levels. Learn the foundational skill of mindfulness and how these could benefit your own life in a way that really makes a difference.

Sleep and Diet

Have you heard of sleep hygiene? This is a variety of different practices and habits that are necessary to have a good night’s sleep and to experience full daytime alertness.

 

Our wellbeing lunch aims to improve resilience and mental wellbeing through better sleep and diet. Resilient people cope better with adversity and are more likely to continue performing well when faced with challenges, as well as being better able to maintain their mental wellbeing – making good sleep and diet so important. Knowing what foods we should be eating can be quite confusing, however, evidence suggests that as well as affecting our physical health, what we eat may also affect the way we feel. This wellbeing lunch will help to explore the science behind good mood food and how eating better can get us feeling better.

Perinatal Mental Health

Did you know that it is common for new mothers to suffer from postnatal mental illness, but only half receive the treatment they need. This wellbeing lunch aims to develop your understanding of the different mental health conditions that can come along with being pregnant, giving birth or having a baby – this means dads too.

Currently health professionals are not funded to give new mums a six week check-up (which would include mental health). Develop your knowledge of what signs to look out for when experiencing a perinatal mental health condition and develop your skills in providing help and support to anyone who is pregnant, has been pregnant recently or just welcomed a new baby into the home.
