Improving our access as human beings to thriving

Course Overview

• A series of 12 (15-20 minute) recorded webinars each aimed at explaining a theory which has relevance to maintaining mental health and improving resilience in today’s difficult circumstances (included). We suggest you release one a week.

• Downloadable PDFs for reference, and a personal action plan from each webinar (included).

• Optional 90-minute coaching sessions after every two sessions to look at personal action plans and current challenges.

These webinars are aimed at people who are employed, furloughed or about to undergo redundancy. We are also happy to tailor or create webinars for your organisation.

This course comprises of ten 10-15 minute pre-recorded webinars covering the following topics:

INSPIRING
The webinars aim to be positive and inspiring, whilst accepting we are all human and human experience is made up of light and dark. We present new ways to think about and understand our situation, thereby empowering and enabling us with new tools.

RELATABLE
Through vast experience and much research, we understand the diverse nature of our audiences. We, therefore, use inclusive language during our webinars to ensure everyone can relate to the content.

PRAGMATIC
Our webinars are aimed at people with normal bad habits that many of us have. We talk about small habit changes, with environmental behavioural nudges, that are sustainable, instead of presenting an idealised image of what an individual can achieve with wholesale change.

RESEARCH DRIVEN
Scientific terminology is used sparingly to ensure relatability; however, there is science behind assertions. Every webinar is backed up by a reference list and an action plan.

 

1. INTRODUCTION TO HAPPINESS THEORY

An outline of the programme and an introduction to the concepts behind the series.

2. UNDERSTANDING THE ROLE STRESS PLAYS IN THE
CHEMISTRY OF OUR BRAIN, WAYS TO CURB STRESS

Stress, controlling it, and our tricky brains.

3. THE BASICS OF WELLBEING

What is wellbeing/the interaction between our physical and mental health.

4. MANAGING OUR ANXIOUS THOUGHTS

Our thoughts are not the truth but how do we stop thinking negative ones?

5. COURAGE IN ADVERSITY (RESILIENCE)

How can we improve our ability to deal with adversity?

6. GET BETTER OR GET BITTER? HOW WE CAN GROW
RATHER THAN SHRINK THROUGH TRAUMA

Dealing with traumatic events such as the recent pandemic, understanding the grief process and possibility of post-traumatic growth.

7. PERFECTIONISM & CUTTING OURSELVES SOME SLACK

The role perfectionism plays in anxiety, consider self-compassion, vulnerability.

8. LEADERSHIP & MANAGER ROLES IN TIMES OF CRISIS

A closer look at psychological safety and macro rather than micromanagement.

9. SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ON IMPROVING HAPPINESS

A look at positive psychology interventions such as giving, learning, gratitude, positive emotion, hope, humour, spirituality.

10. BRAIN TRAINING AKA MINDFULNESS

Mindfulness is viewed by some as new-age hippy stuff, but there is lots of research showing how it improves cognition as well as mental health. It can enable us to deal with the stresses and strains of life much more effectively.

11. TALKING ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH WITH SOMEONE
WHO IS STRUGGLING

A structure to talk to someone struggling with mental distress, which enables us to support them without trying to solve their problem.

12. GOING FORWARD – HABIT CHANGE

Our thoughts and behaviours are habits! Taking responsibility for ourselves and our lives involves thinking about how we can tweak those that don’t serve us – we look at the latest research into how.

Tailoring

Brilliant resource! Gained loads of insight into subjects I hadn't really thought about and picked up some really useful tips.

FAQ's

Whilst we do offer MHFA and First Aid for Mental Health and a peer-to-peer wellbeing conversations course applicable to everyone, we believe that you should focus on managers first.

Why?

  • Firstly, because managers are a key driver of employee wellbeing. Training your managers to have an empathetic conversation with members o fhte team who are struggling will enable those conversations about wellbeing to take place on a much more regular basis, as they often don’t because managers are afraid about saying the wrong thing.

 

  • Secondly, because managers are rarely trained in their legal duties in this area and therefore rely very heavily on HR when it comes to dealing with employees who are struggling. A light touch understanding of the law and best practice in this area will not only increase the number of conversations but decrease the likelihood of you landing up in a tribunal.

MHFA was the first to provide the “first aid” principles which provides a certificate of attendance to all those who engage with the course. Over the last few years a range of new courses have come out which are qualifications – i.e where delegates understanding of the learning outcomes are checked against a series of questions. 

We can deliver either course, but if you are a global organisation we recommend the First Aid for Mental Health course.

First Aid for Mental Health has been produced with Highfield Qualifications course and 

  • We can deliver globally (MHFA is only appropriate to the region it is delivered in)
  • We tailor every course to include a role description as appropriate to you, further support available in your organisation, your logo, your values
  • Boundaries of the role are also discussed – including considerations for a manager who is also an MHFAider
  • Simple mnemonic ABC

 

We have run short webinars with 20,000 attendees and small group sessions of less than 10.  We pick material and exercises and lengths of course appropriate to the audience understanding and the numbers, whether it is face to face or webinar delivery.

Every course with the exception of MHFA is tailored to you in certain aspects. We always promote your internal support, any other courses you have on offer in complementary subjects and can include any values you would like to be promoting 

We can help with that. We can either run a session with your senior team, point you to resources to support your business case look at the levers which will work for you – e.g. safety performance or productivity or happy employees. In some organisations we suggest getting the conversation started in other parts of the organisation to create a ground swell of support.
