Wellbeing in the Advertising Workplace: Addressing the issue

Posted in Events, tagged with Good Karma, UK events, on May 17, 2019

What a great time we had at our mental health awareness event this morning. The event was inspired by a meeting we had at the APA recently in which a number of successful producers discussed work stresses and their struggles in dealing with them and different solutions that they had found. And what better time to launch it than Mental Health Awareness week!

The aim of the session was to share some of those experiences and strategies, to the benefit of those of you dealing with similar issues, or keen to see how you might help employees or colleagues deal with them.

We were joined by various speakers that gave our members practical advice on the wide variety of things they can do to improve their mental health.

Sorcha Shepherd from Caviar who helped spark the idea for the event, introduced the mornings’ speakers but also shared her own personal story with the room explaining why mental health awareness is so important to her.
