This is a new award 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 if you are shortlisted.
You can apply personally, or on behalf of your service, and each successful submission will be published on our website. 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, 2019” on your letters / emails, if you wish.
This is a new award, which means that 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.
The awards will be made annually, and the closing date for submissions is the last day of July. You can make submissions at any time during the year, requesting feedback on your entry if you wish. Results will be announced shortly after the closing date each year. To enter, email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
A 2-day Course (also available as individual days).
Children’s mental health is a serious area of concern – around 10% of children are now reported to have a diagnosable mental health condition and of these, most report delays in accessing appropriate help.
The course is split into two parts, echoing the World Health Organisation’s definition of health as ‘complete physical, mental and social wellbeing, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity’.
Day One is about having your school set up so that it naturally generates good mental health and wellbeing. Day Two is to help you spot people who are having problems, and signpost your best course of action. You can attend either or both days.
