We look forward to receiving your abstract for the Annual SIOPSA Conference.
We’re excited to announce that a three-day conference will be held in Johannesburg, South Africa from Wednesday, 17 July to Friday 19 July 2024. To make the event inclusive and accessible to remote participants, we’ll also be running virtual sessions.
On Tuesday, 16 July 2024, a workplace counseling pre-conference workshop will be held.
The three-day conference will address the following themes: “context,” “content,” and “conduct.”
Context: Focuses on the importance of context in understanding workplace mental health. To help attendees grasp the overall landscape, we’ll be using a scoreboard metaphor. This theme will delve into the root causes of mental health concerns in the workplace, the extent of the mental health crisis, and debunk common myths. We’ll also cover trends and strategies for effectively managing mental health in the workplace.
Content: Focuses on multiple touchpoints, coping mechanisms, and collaborative solutions involved in workplace mental health and well-being, emphasising that it is not an isolated issue.
Conduct: Focuses on adopting a futuristic approach to addressing mental health issues in the workplace, exploring diverse methods to foster sustainable development in mental health.
