FIN-B Member’s Training Workshop on Mental Health and Professional Productivity

Mental health refers to our cognitive, behavioural, and emotional wellbeing – it is all about how we think, feel, and behave. Mental health affects daily life, relationships, and even physical health. Mental healthcare in Bangladesh is almost unrecognised and non-existent. Most people, especially in the rural areas, are not aware of the importance of mental health. This causes a huge loss in human productivity due to depression, anxiety, PTSD, addiction, and other mental illnesses.

With proper awareness on mental health and mental illness, collaboration can be developed among FIN-B members and others interested in bringing about positive changes in the field of mental healthcare and enhance the productivity of the NGOs sector personnel.

InM, under the FIN-B platform and in collaboration with LifeSpring Consultancy Limited and KK Foundation, will organise a Training Workshop on ‘Mental Health and Professional Productivity’ in February 2020 for the FIN-B members. The workshop will discuss a comprehensive concept covering the following issues:

  1. Conduct awareness programme by mental health professionals

  3. Information on services, like:
                                                     – Psychiatric & psychological services

                                                     – Conduct training programmes for NGOs, beneficiaries and people in the rural areas
