Lundbeck is a global pharmaceutical company highly committed to improving the quality of life of people suffering from brain diseases.
As well as producing essential medicines, we also engage in disease-awareness campaigns. As part of its remit, Lundbeck Ireland Ltd continues to embark on educational campaigns in the area of mental health. The ongoing focus of the campaigns is to raise awareness, and in the process, destigmatise each condition.
As specialists in psychiatry, Lundbeck is committed to education and raising this awareness, through the provision of information which will enhance the perception of people living with mental health issues in the community.
Lundbeck is also unique among pharmaceutical companies, by focusing 100% of its research, production and marketing activities on products for the treatment of brain disease.
This focus allows Lundbeck to establish strong links with academics, clinicians and patients with interests in the area of brain disease.
The Lundbeck Institute based in Denmark is unique to Lundbeck. Its goal is to help increase the awareness of psychiatric and neurological diseases by providing evidence-based education and information for physicians. The Lundbeck Institute is fully dedicated to non-promotion related activities.
Lundbeck has called for greater acceptance of and openness towards mental illness in the workplace and we are continually engaged in initiatives to de-stigmatise mental illness in Ireland and hope that employers will assist in this task.
Lundbeck are partnered with Aware to run a series of Wellness@Work education and training programmes for employees and managers which are now available to companies nationwide. The short programme is designed to help employees understand the importance of looking after their mental health and developing coping skills to limit the impact of any challenges and concerns. A half-day option provides managers with the skills and strategies to best support employees who are dealing with life challenges or mental health issues.
The Wellness@Work programmes are supported by Lundbeck Ireland Ltd. As a specialist in psychiatry, Lundbeck Ireland is committed to education and raising awareness through the provision of information which will enhance the perception of people living with mental health issues. Lundbeck is continually engaging in initiatives to de-stigmatise mental illness in Ireland and hope that employers will assist in this task. Speaking about this, Pat Campion, Country Manager for Lundbeck Ireland said: “Mental health can impact on many aspects of our lives including how we feel about ourselves and others, and how we are able to meet the demands of everyday life. Coping with stress at work is one very important aspect of ensuring positive mental health. We are delighted to be supporting Aware with the Wellness@Work programmes."
The programmes have been developed under the guidance of Aware’s clinical team and are delivered by professional trainers who have received extensive training from Aware.
