Talking about mental health with employers: applying for jobs with confidence

June 9, 2021 @ 14:00 - 17:00

Mental health has been the subject of extensive focus by organisations during the pandemic. Employers’ knowledge is increasing as growing numbers of applicants and employees are impacted.

This session will empower you to navigate any conversation, to know when and how to talk about mental health both during recruitment and in work, to understand your rights, and provide the opportunity to confidentially ask any questions of our disability partner EmployAbility. We hope you’ll join us.

This session will be from 14:00-15:00.
