Atlas Insurance will once again organise a series of events throughout October to mark Mental Health Awareness month, which will be open for members of staff, clients, and the general public.
On Monday 10 October, which is World Mental Health Day, The Malta Chamber Health & Wellness Committee, which Atlas sponsors and which is chaired by Atlas Healthcare Managing Director Catherine Calleja, will host a webinar entitled “Mental Wellbeing – A Priority for Your Business”. The webinar will include interviews, a panel discussion and interventions from experts on social, health and economic impact of adverse mental health on the workforce and on the workplace itself.
A series of other webinars will be made available for TeamAtlas throughout the month on different topics, such as dealing with behavioural addictions, building better romantic relationships and cognitive beliefs.
Later this month, Atlas will host a webinar with the global Employee Assistance Programme, ICAS, on Gambling Addiction as part of the European Safer Gambling Week, in order to provide leaders with the tools and awareness they need to support their staff.
