JCI Nottingham is hosting a one day Mental Health Conference, ’Lets get talking’, in October where we will be taking on the conversation of mental health.
We all have times when life gets on top of us – sometimes that’s work-related, like deadlines or travel. Sometimes it’s something else – our health, our relationships, or our circumstances.
Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year, and yet there can still be a stigma attached around mental health issues. In line with the UN Sustainable Development Goal 3, Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages, the conference provides a day of learning, where you can find out more about mental health, and the challenges faced by those going through mental health problems.
The JCI Nottingham Mental Health Conference ’Lets get talking’ provides a day of learning, and will take a wider look at how overall wellbeing can help to support the recovery and resilience with mental health. We hope you will leave feeling informed around what mental health is but also have an awareness of looking after their own mental health, and those around them.
Highlights include an anecdote of a personal journey with mental health, stories from the field in a panel discussion, and much more. Mental health is often misunderstood and changing the conversation around mental health starts with you.
The one day conference will be held in Nottingham during October, with refreshments provided.
