It is increasingly recognised how important mental health and wellbeing in the workplace is, which is why CMAE has a workshop dedicated to the subject at the upcoming European Conference on Club Management.

It is estimated that around 84 million people across Europe suffer from a mental health condition. That's about 1 in 6 people. This impacts on our employees and our members, throughout our organisations. And the scale of the problem is only getting worse. Improving mental health is the responsibility of everyone, but as clubs we play a vital role in the heart of our communities. How can we help make an impact?

Nathan Shearman from Red Umbrella 

In this interactive workshop we're going to be discussing how we'll discuss what mental health is, how it affects people, and the signs and symptoms to look out for. We'll talk about how to initiate conversations about mental health, and how we can create a positive culture around mental health in our organisations.

The workshop will be delivered by Nathan Shearman and Tim Ladd from Red Umbrella, a company providing first aid training in mental health & wellbeing and also supporting clubs with assets in the same field.

Inaddition to this, Steve Graves of Creative Marketing will deliver a workshop on Improving member loyalty through emotional awareness. This workshop will provide you with tangible, logical, practical and workable strategies to enhance the emotional connection of your members/golfers to your club.
