Promoting mental well-being in your workplace through ART WORKSHOPS

Mental Health has eventually found its way to the top of most agendas in businesses and organisations throughout the UK and Ireland and not before time.

The impact to both the individual and the organisation has reached unprecedented levels – for the first time ever in the UK, work-related stress accounts for over half (57%) of all working days lost due to ill health.

Those employers and business owners who value and care for their staff are naturally inclined to promote positive mental health and create environments for their employees to flourish.

Statistics suggest that there is a strong business case for the promotion of mental health and well-being. (It is estimated that up to 11 million work days are lost through absenteeism every year at a cost of €1.5bn to the Irish economy.)*

                       “You can do anything but not everything,”

“Art For the Senses” is a made-for business programme of art workshops, presenting art as an ‘intervention’ and ‘therapy’ for those businesses and organisations who value the well-being of their employees and who seek to create an emotionally healthy environment for everyone.

The workshops are hosted and curated by Geralyn Mulqueen, artist, published writer and psychoanalytic psychotherapist.

Created uniquely for the needs of your organisation, Art For The Senses workshops are designed for everyone:
– c-level executives, management teams, sales professionals, administrative staff, business owners
– individuals or teams.

With art as a central theme, the workshops are held in locations throughout the country that inspire creativity, calm and relaxation and encourage the individual to explore the hidden creative within.
