  • The equality act
  • Bullying and examples of bullying
  • Harassment and examples of harassment
  • Explaining what happens if bullying and harassment is not addressed
  • Personal liability and duty of care

Mental health awareness

This one hour workshop increases the awareness and understanding around mental health and helps managers to recognise the signs and offer support to people suffering from mental distress in the workplace and in the community. 

This workshop was designed and is delivered by Sarah McCaffrey at Solas Mind who has worked for many years in film and the media and is also a qualified psychotherapist (MBACP).

“The swiftness with which some crew progress means they have not developed their soft skills, so it is brilliant that ScreenSkills is continuing with its training in leadership and management, together with antibullying and harassment, and is able to offer it to all productions.”
