    Mental health challenges affect many people accessing employment support in Fife, yet they may not feel comfortable talking about this and thus may not be supported appropriately in their employability journey.

    The Fife Mental Health and Work Indicator (MHWI) has been created to help employability workers to have an appropriate and supportive conversation with people about how their mental health might impact their journey to work and ensure people who have more complex mental health problems are signposted to appropriate support.

    The MHWI has been designed to be used as part of an organisation’s existing client interview/assessment process and is not additional.

    When used with FORT, the MHWI also generates non-personal data on how well our employability pathway is supporting people with mental health problems on their journey to work.

    Participants at this workshop will:

    • Understand the different definitions of mental health and wellbeing
    • Explore how mental health challenges might affect someone’s journey towards, into, and sustaining employment
    • Be introduced to the Mental Health & Work Indicator as a tool for supporting conversations around mental health
    • Discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with using the Indicator within organisations and with people they support
