I Am Here – Improving your mental health and wellbeing in this new remote world

Emma Wilson Managing Director,  Australia & New Zealand of I Am Here shared some excellent tips with us during our recent Remote Working webinar to ensure you and your team measurably improve your mental health and wellbeing in this new remote world.  “We all have a core desire to help one another – yet often we don’t know how to help, or we are concerned we’ll make things worse.  It is also at your greatest times of need that we are least likely to ask for help.  Now, when so many of us are working remotely, we need to work harder to genuinely connecting and reach out when we think someone needs support’

Collectively

Remote Working as a team

I Am Here is an award-winning mental health and wellbeing programme powered by PulseLearning – a global Top 10 learning company founded in 1999. The programme facilitates a cultural change within organisations to one where it’s ok not to feel ok; and it’s absolutely ok to ask for help.

The programme gives Team Members the courage, confidence and skills to compassionately connect and signpost supporting services in their workplace or community to team members, friends and families.  Needed even more now.

Until at least September 30, 2020, I Am Here is offering a streamlined program, free to organisations across Australia and New Zealand. To find out more, please contact emma.wilson@pulselearning.com
