R U OK?Day: Supporting Mental Health and Wellbeing in the Workplace
September 10, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us for this interactive webinar on R U OK?Day where we will shine a spotlight on mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
A conversation could change a life. In a time where people can feel disconnected and mental health can suffer, we hope this session will bring our audience some practical tips and ideas to support them to ask that crucial question: Are You OK?
Continuing our series of virtual events, in this webinar we will hear from leaders across health, mining and technology as they discuss initiatives and tools they have implemented to support their team’s mental wellbeing. Our audience will also have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the panel, via our Zoom Q&A function.

Since 2009 he has worked in various project management roles for industry vendors, EPCs and business owner’s teams. Ken currently works for BHP as a Senior Project Manager delivering technology projects. Ken’s first interest in mental health stemmed from seeing the void in understanding from society, compared with the wealth of knowledge surrounding physical health issues. Staggered at just how many people were affected in some way by either their own mental health experience or that of someone close them, he joined the Mental Health and Wellbeing Steering Committee at BHP to raise mental health awareness and help break down stigmatism surrounding it.
