Workshops offer an affordable opportunity to learn new techniques, expand your knowledge and to benefit from interaction with a group of like-minded and motivated people from various professions and backgrounds. Unfortunately today we are unable to bring you physical workshops – our preferred method – but are beginning to get quite adept with online sessions through Zoom.
Our main online offering is the Let’s Talk About series which is detailed HERE
Mental Health in the Workplace
At any moment, over 35% of people in Hong Kong (HK) are suffering at work with symptoms of a mental health condition. The 2019 study by Oliver Wyman and the City Mental Health Alliance (CMHA)HK identified that HK workers are not comfortable to talk about mental health issues, they have rarely received any training related to mental health issues and many continued to work knowing they were performing below their capacity.
It’s not a shock to learn that people who ignore mental health problems are three times more likely to take a long-term sickness absence, and that’s a clear problem for businesses. A 2017 report by Deloitte states that, if an employee leaves their employer due to mental health-related reasons, the cost to the employer is significant as they need to find a replacement, lose valuable professional experience and they need to provide new training. The 2019 study by Oliver Wyman and CMHA estimated the cost of mental health-related turnover in HK is around 5 – 12Bn HKD per year.
The most successful employers in the public, private and non-profit sectors have introduced a positive culture around mental health at work. Not only does it help their people, it also improves their organisation’s performance.
Having good mental health is important to your business as it creates a pleasant working environment and therefore attracts a higher calibre of worker. This results in employees being better motivated and performing tasks to a higher standard. There will be less sick-days and your reputation as a business will be enhanced when it is known you ‘look after’ your employees.

Resilience & Mindfulness Training
Some people work well under pressure, others just become overwhelmed. The Resilience & Mindfulness Training workshop can support individuals by helping them be more present to manage the pressures of corporate life. We all live very busy lives with not enough hours in the day to do the work required. The Resilience and Mindfulness Training will provide effective tools to help us become more aware. Only then will we be able to give our attention to what is happening in the present moment, instead of fretting about something that has not occurred.

Mental Health Awareness in the Workplace Training
Sometimes it will seem obvious when someone is going through a hard time, but there is no simple way of knowing if they have a mental health problem. Although certain symptoms are common with specific mental health problems, people react differently when they are unwell. Some can hide what they are going through and others are an open book. But eventually, mental health issues will cause a person’s behaviour to alter. If a work colleague exhibits behavioural changes, they may have a problem and need help.
The key to arresting mental health problems is being able to identify them in ourselves or our colleagues. The Mental Health Awareness in the Workplace Training workshop has been developed to give employers or employees knowledge and insight into how to identify, understand and help individuals who may be developing mental health issues.
