Supporting people with mental health concerns at work

Ben Aldridge

Ahead of this year’s International Day of People with Disability on December 3, APM is hosting a series of webinars with leaders dedicated to supporting the greater inclusion of people with disability.

The first webinar is from Ben Aldridge the founder and managing director of 30 Foot Drop and will take place on Wednesday 16 November.

Ben will be discussing what flexibility and adaptations workplaces can make to help people with mental health conditions thrive in their job.

Ben, who is a former soldier with a physical disability and a diagnosed mental health condition, will be sharing unique insights from his own experiences as well as the work he has done as an educator in the disability space.

As a business owner Ben also has first-hand experience of supporting other people with visible and non-visible disability to succeed in the workplace.

The webinar is part of a series of talks in the lead up to International Day of People with Disability on Saturday, December 3.

Register here to join Ben and the APM team via Microsoft Teams at 2pm (AEDT) on Wednesday 16 November.

What is your team doing for #IDWPD?

International Day of People with Disability is a chance for organisations everywhere to better recognise and support people with disability.

The annual celebration and recognition of people with disability aims to reduce the inaccurate stereotypes that surround many disabilities and enable more recognition of an individual’s ability.

It also provides a chance for leaders to check if their organisation is missing out on the multiple benefits of being inclusive of people with disability.

At APM we help thousands of people with disability access employment, community and mainstream support every day.

Across the APM Group our teams also guide organisations to better serve customers, support employees and colleagues, and grow in their community, through a range of services and programs on being accessible and inclusive of people with disability.

We believe everyone has a role to play in enabling better lives for people with disability, and we want to make it easier for more people and organisations to do just that.
