This award is to highlight the importance of this subject. People spend so much time in the workplace that anything we can do there to foster good mental health is likely to pay off handsomely for everybody.
Application is simple: just 2,000 words, and the preparedness to present your submission at a mini conference here in Leicester (24th September 2020) if you are selected as a finalist, and the winner is announced at the end of that day.
Entry is free and the closing date for submissions is 31st July 2020. The application may be on your own behalf or on behalf of your service, and each successful submission will be published on our website. The winner of this category receives an award of £500, and the main motivator is the status of winning the award itself as well as presenting in the finals if you are selected.
The benefit of receiving such an award is primarily in satisfaction and status. The tangible benefit is in the form of a certificate, which states your receipt of the award. You will also be able to put the words “Recipient of The APT Award for Fostering Good Mental Health in the Workplace, 2020” on your letters / emails, if you wish.
You can submit whatever you judge would be relevant to the title of the award: anything that describes how you or your organisation fosters good mental health. More credit will be allocated to ‘substantial’ evidence-based measures such as ensuring that people are in roles that suit their aptitudes, as opposed to less substantial ones, such as urging people to talk about their feelings and emotions.
To apply, there is a simple procedure and it is free of charge:
1. Write the project of up to 2,000 words.
2. Send it off to us to get to us by the end of July (email submissions to email@example.com).
3. If you are shortlisted for an award, come and present your project at a mini-conference on Thursday 24th September 2020, where other professionals will also present their submissions. Up to 15 minutes per paper. Hopefully this will be an enjoyable day. It’s free to attend for presenters (one per submission), £95 plus VAT for non-members, and £75 plus VAT for members.
4. Sit back and hope yours is the winner. The four winners will be announced and awarded that day. Being a finalist itself is something you can put on their emails, letterheads or whatever, and we’re hoping that people will be proud to do so!
