Please note a change of venue

The Division of Occupational Psychology (DOP) and the Society of Occupational Medicine (SOM) are organising a joint event that focuses on mental health at work.

In this afternoon event, you will hear from distinguished speakers who will present their research and perspectives on this topic.

So, come along to get insight into why mental health is not ‘an issue’ for organisations, but a health condition that if addressed in an appropriate manner will allow individuals with mental health issues to function more effectively at their jobs and within a supportive work environment.

Four speakers will address the issue:

  • Dr. Sally Coomber, Past President of the SOM
  • Professor Neil Greenberg, Consultant Occupational and Forensic Psychiatrist and Professor of Defence Mental Health
  • Professor Ivan Robertson, Robertson Cooper Ltd and Emeritus Professor of Work & Organisational Psychology at The University of Manchester
  • Professor Peter Kinderman, President of the British Psychological Society, Chartered Psychologist and HCPC Registered Clinical Psychologist and a Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Liverpool.

There is an opportunity to network with other professionals who work in this area.

Remember, mental health is not a person issue, but one that all societies have to focus on and support.

Please see the programme tab for further information.
