Business owners in Byron Shire are invited to attend a free ‘Healthy Mindset’ workshop aimed at providing them with resources and tools to improve mental health and wellbeing, as well as the opportunity to connect with other business owners.

The workshop is facilitated by Mullumbimby Psychology and will be held on 10 June 2021 at the Cavanbah Centre on Ewingsdale Road.

Lisa Richards, Council’s Business Enterprise Officer, said the aim of the workshop was to provide business owners with strategies and tools to cope with the mental stress of owning or running a small business. ‘Council ran a similar workshop in October last year and we had terrific feedback from those who attended,’ said Ms Richards.

‘The COVID-19 pandemic has put an enormous amount of pressure on businesses in the shire in a range of different ways including the need for some to diversify and change the way they operate and find staff to help them keep the doors open.

‘This workshop, which is being facilitated by Mullumbimby Psychology, will look at things including skills to help people manage burnout and how to look after their mental health,’ she said.

The workshop will run from 8:45am – 3:30pm and lunch will be provided. Numbers are limited.

People can register by emailing: [email protected].
