Change of Mind Participants

Change Of Mind

Change of Mind is a programme that is intended to enable employees to build a better understanding of colleagues who are sufferers from mental health issues, and to develop greater empathy in the workplace. The sessions are centred around specially developed tracks of music-with-words to give delegates an ‘evoking experience’ of a mental health disorder such as depression and anxiety. Change of Mind breaks the mould of traditional training sessions, giving the delegates a chance to feel, just for a short time, what it might be like to suffer from a mental health disorder.

Outcome: More resilient team, encourages a more supportive, co-operative and therefore productive work environment.

Full Description

Mental health issues in the workplace are increasingly common and often go undetected. Change of Mind is an innovative programme exploring common mental health disorders that might be encountered at work. The programme is designed to build resilience, boost empathy and help to create a more productive working environment.   The sessions are centred around specially developed tracks of music-with-words to give delegates an ‘evoking experience’ of a mental health disorder such as depression and anxiety. With the help of a trained moderator, delegates are then guided through ideas and discussions such as:

  • What it’s like and how it feels
  • Why it happens
  • Why it’s difficult in the workplace
  • How you can help and why you should help

A trained moderator uses the engaging and affecting medium of specially recorded music to raise understanding of and evoke empathy with these eight common mental health disorders. The topics covered are: Addiction, Dementia, Anorexia, Depression, Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

 

A mental health disorder is introduced to the group and the music played. Groups are then divided into twos and threes to discuss each in turn. Working together, they try to understand what it might feel like to have that condition.

The programme is intended to enable the group to build a better understanding of colleagues who are sufferers, and to develop greater empathy generally in the workplace. This in turn will produce a more resilient team and encourage a more supportive, co-operative and therefore productive work environment.

Change of Mind breaks the mould of traditional training sessions, giving the delegates a chance to feel, just for a short time, what it might be like to suffer from a mental health disorder. Building empathy and knowledge around mental health unites the workforce and encourages a more supportive and co-operative work environment.

Change of Mind can be delivered as a one-off day or a series of days over a period of time. The programme is suited to all levels of the workplace and ideally delivered to groups of 12-16 people. Our trained Moderators engage with their audience and deliver the programme by using the engaging medium of recorded music to raise understanding of and evoke sympathy around common mental health disorders; bringing topics to life and keeping the content engaging and interesting; the moderators are dedicated and will not only inspire but also give support to individuals helping with any concerns that may arise.

A training or conference room is ideal with seating and space for a projector and screen (or white wall to project on).  A light airy or air conditioned room also creates a great environment in which to learn.

Building empathy and knowledge around mental health unites the workforce and encourages a more supportive and co-operative work environment.
