In a recent virtual training session held on September 6 and 7, 2023, from 8:30 AM to 12:00 NN via Zoom, workplace psychologist and learning and development professional Ms. Alessandra "Aless" Arpon, RPsy, and CSCOP, delivered an engaging workshop titled "Planning and Creating Mental Health Activities for All Work Setups." The event, which spanned two days, provided valuable insights for addressing mental health in various workplace scenarios.
On the first day of the training, before diving into discussions, participants introduced themselves by sharing their names, positions, and contributions they could make to improve workplace mental health. The atmosphere was vibrant and positive, with participants expressing their genuine enthusiasm and support for one another's contributions. Topics covered during the training included the impact of the pandemic on work and the future of work in individual teams and organizations. Ms. Aless Arpon led the discussion, delving into the causes and consequences of mental health challenges in the workplace. She also explored the advantages and disadvantages of positive and negative mental health in employees.
Participants found the training highly relatable, as they could connect with the topics discussed, given their own experiences or encounters with individuals facing similar challenges. Overall, the first training session was a resounding success, with participants expressing their enjoyment of the discussions and activities led by Ms. Aless.
On the second day of the training, discussions centered around workplace mental health, and the day's activities were a highlight. Participants thoroughly enjoyed these activities as they found them highly relatable to real-world issues. This connection fostered an environment where open communication flourished, enabling participants to share their insights, concerns, and personal stories. For instance, one activity focused on the traditional office setting, covering on-site, remote work, and hybrid work scenarios, exploring the role of well-being facilitators and stressors.
Both training sessions were deemed successful, primarily because the participants were able to apply to their own organization's needs the discussions and activities given by Ms. Aless. The training sessions truly highlighted the vital role mental health plays in improving their organizations and underlined the importance of addressing it.
