Mental health problems can affect anyone, regardless of age, race, gender or social background.
Exploring both the damaging and beneficial aspects of working life on mental health, this international symposium brings together key stakeholders, mental health specialists and policy-makers to raise concerns, share ideas and propose solutions. Delegates will be encouraged to discuss current initiatives, examine innovative approaches to promote mental health at the workplace and consider the relationship between mental well-being and unemployment. It promises to provide topical and thought-provoking debate.
The seminar will look at ageing in the workplace and will review changing workplace demographics, and older worker discrimination and competencies. Particular attention will be paid to older worker health and wellbeing needs, including suggestions and guidelines for how organisations can attend to the health needs of an ageing workforce.
