Birmingham Well Being Forum 15th July


Date and Time

Wed 15 Jul

  • July 15, 2020
    12:30 pm - 1:30 pm


The dynamic has shifted and we are really beginning to feel
it. We are all appreciating that we are creating a new future,
through all the changes to our working patterns, but we
don’t know exactly what it will look like – and our personal
resilience may be dipping after the long lockdown period.

In our next session we will therefore be looking at how we
can help create a sustainable way ahead, living with more
uncertainty than we might have been used to in the past.

Our Wellbeing Forum sessions include some structured
input – including a refresher on some aspect of wellbeing
– as well as a chance to share views on the challenges and
opportunities for Wellbeing champions at this time. There is
also space for co-learning, using breakout rooms, using training
material or a case study to help us think more deeply together about a potential workplace situation/ scenario and the support we can offer our colleagues.

We will be meeting via Zoom, with further details being sent out to all attendees a few days before the event date.

Our experienced Co-Facilitators are both passionate about supporting wellbeing as we navigate the challenges of life at work and beyond – particularly through this pandemic.

With the many challenges faced by individuals and businesses as we respond to Covid-19, we are glad to offer this Forum free of charge at present, as part of ChaplaincyPlus’s support for the Birmingham business community. In due course, we will be moving to a paid-for basis for participation in Mental Health First Aider Forums, as part of the package of services comprising the City Wellbeing Initiative.
