Thursday 22nd August 2024 I 11 am BST 

Supporting generational differences in mental health for a healthy workforce

Register now

We currently have a workforce made up of five generations: traditionalists, baby boomers, Generation X, millennials and Generation Z.

Our research conducted in Ireland, the UK and Australia has shown that different generations face different mental health challenges – parenting, caring for older family members, stress, anxiety, money worries and burnout are just some of the challenges faced by our multigenerational workforce. Health providers and employers need to be aware of the mental vulnerabilities faced by each generation and create a plan to support the ‘’whole person’’, not just the part of them they bring to work.

 And there is a good business reason too. Substantial evidence shows that investing in wellbeing directly improves organisational outputs. The cost to employers in the UK from mental-health-related staff issues has been estimated at £117.9 billion annually. The good news, though, is that interventions to improve wellbeing can boost productivity by as much as 12%.

In this webinar, we will be joined by Vita Health Group. Vita Health Group is dedicated to making people better, by providing integrated physical and mental health services to employers/insurers, the NHS and private patients. We will unpack how Vita utilise digital therapy solutions to support a multigenerational workforce with varied mental health presentations.

We will be joined by Ryan Luney, Senior Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner at Vita Health Group and Dr Carolyn Lorian, PhD CPsychol, Head of Clinical Transformation at Amwell as they discuss the mental health challenges of our workforce.

NHS Scotland has pioneered the use of digital to support patients with specialised mental health needs by implementing the SilverCloud ® platform into their care pathways. This webinar will unpack the NHS Scotland story and how they are helping people with Long-Term Conditions manage their mental health, as well as families during the Perinatal period.  

We will be joined by Chris Wright, National Advisor for Digital Mental Health, Scottish Government and Douglas Hiscock CPsychol, Behavioural Health Lead, Amwell for an in-depth discussion on how digital can support these patient groups. 

Long Terms Conditions  

Common mental health issues such as anxiety and depression are two to three times more likely to occur in people with physical long-term conditions compared with the general population. Being diagnosed with a long-term condition can have a profound and multidimensional impact on an individual’s life. NHS Scotland have been utilising the SilverCloud platforms programmes to support people with Long Term Conditions such as Chronic Pain, Diabetes, Heart Conditions and Lung Conditions. This has allowed the services to provide care to a dispersed population and provide support support in context of high levels of demand for specialist psychology resource. We will hear more from Chris Wright about some of the results, outcomes and challenges faced by NHS Scotland with this patient group 

Perinatal Mental Health  

Mental health issues during the perinatal period, pregnancy and one year after childbirth, are common. Approximately 10-20% of women in the UK experience mental health issues such as depression during pregnancy. Pregnancy complications such as miscarriage increase this risk of mental health issues during perinatal period. Families need prompt access to evidence-based treatment to improve outcomes. NHS Scotland will unpack how they are utilising the SilverCloud platform to support families during the perinatal period.
