LionHeart will be running a day of online events to mark World Mental Health Day on October 10th.
The day is held globally to encourage people to think about their own and others’ mental health, and to raise awareness of efforts to support positive mental health and wellbeing.
LionHeart’s online programme will include webinars, live Q&A chats, and video content featuring some of our trainers, staff and mental health ambassadors, all of whom are practising surveyors with first-hand experience of mental health issues.
It’s completely free to sign up and once people have log-in details they can join for any or all of the events, which will be spaced throughout the day in short 30-minute chunks.
LionHeart mental health project co-ordinator Jo Grant, who is organising the day, said: “The wellbeing and mental health workshops and webinars that we run have become increasingly popular, and there is definitely an appetite from RICS professionals to explore the issues surrounding mental health, both in the workplace and in their personal lives.
“At LionHeart, we see first hand the impact that common problems like stress, anxiety or depression can have on people and their families, and these now account for around 15% of calls to our helpline.
“We look forward to having as many people as possible join us for what we hope will be a thought-provoking programme on World Mental Health Day.”
Programme for the day:
