Mindful Matters: Unpacking Mental Health Stigmas
We acknowledge the sobering statistics: nearly one in five engineers has tragically lost a colleague to suicide, and over a fifth have grappled with taking time off due to mental health concerns. Particularly, 'invisible' disabilities pose unique challenges when it comes to seeking support in the workplace. It's crucial to recognise that depression has risen to become the leading global cause of ill health and disability.
In this webinar we confront the stigma that engineers encounter when seeking the help they need, and to foster a culture of open dialogue within our community, encouraging individuals to share their personal experiences.
