Birmingham Wellbeing Forum:
WORKING FROM HOME & SUPPORTING WELLBEING
Across the Birmingham business community, frontline support for wellbeing is increasingly provided by Wellbeing Champions and Mental Health First Aiders. This Forum is to ‘support the supporters’: it gives an opportunity for staff who are supporting colleagues to come together and focus on the particular issues we are currently facing.
Change can cause anxiety and we’ve embraced so many changes in recent months. In the light of current work patterns and on the new patterns that will emerge post-lockdown, this month’s Wellbeing Forum will focus on:
• The wellbeing impact of working from home
• Supporting wellbeing remotely – challenges and tips
This practical session will include input from the facilitators, and the opportunity to break up into smaller groups to discuss with other Wellbeing Champions for mutual learning and encouragement.
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.
