A century of veteran mental health, the advancements in treatment and the changing attitudes towards employing veterans is the focus of our free-to-attend Military Mind business symposium in Glasgow on 23 May. The symposium will be held from 9am – 2.30pm at 1599 at The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.
Sponsored by Thales, Military Mind will explore the value that former servicemen and women add to an organisation’s productivity and the practical ways that companies can ensure the workplace wellbeing of their veteran and reservist employees. The event will centre on what support companies can implement, regardless of their size or sector. Experts in the field of military mental health, as well as those in the corporate sector who employ veterans, will join clinical specialists from Combat Stress to present methods that businesses have used to create a supportive environment for veterans and reservists at work.
Sue Freeth, Chief Executive of Combat Stress, said: “Former servicemen and women bring enormous value to the workplace. This symposium will help responsible businesses build and enhance their workplace wellbeing programmes for their veteran and reservist workforce. “Through this symposium we will explore practical ways companies can create effective, well-being support initiatives in the workplace. Our aim is to ensure employers are fully equipped to support their former service employees.”
