As humans, we have multiple identities that can sometimes lead to privilege and sometimes to discrimination.
We must continually question where the power lies in different societies, organisations and groups to understand why some individuals are treated better than others, find it easier to be successful, and/or are more readily included. Only by doing this can we begin to understand how to support both our own mental wellbeing and the wellbeing of our colleagues.
We offer a range of diversity and inclusion training sessions looking at how individual identities in the workplace are seen and the affect this has on people’s mental health and wellbeing. In these sessions, we look at a number of identities using an intersectional approach and through the lens of mental health:
- LGBTQI+ & Allies
- Cultural Isolation
- Special Abilities (Physical and Neurological)
- Generational inclusion/Ageism
Each session is 90 minutes including a 30 minute reflection space at the end. We explore the following themes in relation to mental health:
- Hidden realities
- Multiple disadvantage and intersectionality
- Crucial conversations: disclosure at work
- Stigma & discrimination
- Stress & anxiety
- Assertiveness and ownership
- Accessing support
- Exploring the benefits of having a diverse, inclusive and resilient workforce
- Understanding ‘minority stress’ and its impact on wellbeing
- Awareness of our own perceptions and assumptions about different identities
- Increased confidence in having conversations about diversity and mental health
- Improved understanding about, and ability to access mental health services, professionals and what support is available
