MH1 Global Events

Menopause, this may come as a shock to business leaders…. you could face legal action.

Did you know that employers could face legal action if they fail to make “reasonable adjustments” for women who are experiencing menopause symptoms, under new guidance issued by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC)?
(February 2024)
Or, that The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 states that employers have a duty to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of their workers, which includes recognising and managing menopausal symptoms that may impact their ability to work.
MH1 Global  is holding a seminar to help employers navigate this landscape on 26th June at Bolton Arena.
Our mission to bring education, research, innovation and talking more in the mental health space makes us perfectly placed to host this event and break down barriers that have existed for years.
Your speakers June Potts MBA  and Amantha King  are leading experts in the workplace menopause space and will share their wisdom and experience to help and guide attendees by presenting realistic adjustments that can support colleagues on their menopause journey.
Meanwhile, Dr Nicole Green, who runs a specialist menopause clinic, will speak about her belief that ‘everybody has a different experience’ therefore a range of support, lifestyle changes and medical interventions should be considered.
This is an opportunity to listen and learn from experts who are working day after day  to help and educate companies as well as individuals who are experiencing this phase of the aging process.
Let’s not also forget those colleagues, relatives, clients and friends who are trying to understand this process too.
(Bet there are partners, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters out there who would love to know how to help to support their loved ones!)
You will walk out of the seminar wiser about the subject and armed with tools and information that will help you on both an  individual level as well as for your  organisation.

Ticket price £120.
Lunch and refreshments included.

Charlotte Maidment

Lynne chatted to Charlotte Maidment  about the history behind the release of her book and her quest for it to reach as many people as possible.
• This is the journey of her ‘lived experience’ during the mental ill health of her husband, Steve.
• The periods of hospitalisation.
• The toll it took on her personally.
• How ‘The Book of Hope’ evolved (with Steve’s input), to be a refreshing tool and ‘go to’ resource.

The Book of Hope is now one of MH1’s recommended resources for the MHQ training.
