Mental Health Awareness Week

18th-24th May 2020

In a world where work-life balance has become increasingly complex, taking the time to address mental health in the workplace is not just beneficial—it’s crucial. For Mental Health Awareness Week 2020, consider bringing in a mental health speaker to enlighten, empower, and inspire your team. It’s a decision that could have a lasting impact on your colleagues’ mental health, making your workplace a more supportive, understanding place for everyone.

After all, positive mental health is not a destination, but a process. It’s about how you drive, not where you’re going.

So what are some of the Benefits of booking a mental health speaker for Mental Health Awareness Week 2020?

  1. They Share Personal Stories: Mental health speakers often share their personal experiences with mental health issues. These stories can be immensely powerful, as they show that it’s possible to face and overcome adversity. They humanise mental health struggles, breaking down the barriers of stigma and misunderstanding.
  2. They Provide Actionable Tips: Alongside their stories, mental health speakers can provide practical, actionable tips that employees can incorporate into their day to day lives. They can provide advice on how to manage stress, techniques for promoting resilience, and tactics for maintaining well-being during challenging times.
  3. They Create an Empathetic Environment: A mental health speaker can help to create a culture of empathy and understanding within an organisation. Employees can leave with a better understanding of not only their own mental health, but how to support others’ mental well-being.
