To benefit from the last day of the globe hanging in the Abbey, Triangulate hosted an Employment Event aimed at employers, individuals and community groups. We were delighted to welcome an audience of over 100, including the Town Mayor Cllr John Parker, to view a series of short films projected onto the globe. Produced by Richard McLester the films focused on approaches that could be taken within the workplace and at home to deal with issues relating to anxiety and stress.
Richard Frost, Mindful Employer Lead, attended and spoke about sources of support that are available to employers, including two recent films ‘Let’s Talk’ and ‘Working with Anxiety’.
Triangulate Trustees Ian Cox, Canon Tim Sledge and Bridget Brook had all contributed to the films giving their perspectives on a range of wellbeing issues but all stressing the positives of creating opportunities for individuals to talk.
Increasingly there is an understanding of how wellness can be improved by opportunities additional to medical interventions. Tim spoke about The Tree of Life cafe held every Monday afternoon in Caffe Nero and we also heard about a new GP prescription arts programme being offered by Rum’s Eg.
At the end there was the opportunity for conversations and individual questions as well as the chance to look at a wide range of leaflets and books. We were also pleased to welcome colleagues from italk, Hampshire’s talking therapies service.
