Venue TBC - Midlands

workshop host

PAUL LONGLEY - Think Mental Health

Paul Longley set up Think Mental Health to improve wellbeing in the workplace for employees and employers alike.
 
Having personally suffered poor mental health for over twenty years, his courses take real life experience and transform it into a positive, practical and powerful method of teaching about mental wellbeing. 
 
Through insightful and enjoyable lessons, Paul shows businesses across the UK how to focus on mental health just as much as physical health, which can lead to incredible results. 

Mental Health in the Creative Industries Workshop

Research by wellbeing charity Inspire and Ulster University highlighted that people working in the creative industries are three times more likely to suffer from mental health problems than the general public.

This research was carried out in 2018, and since then we have had a global pandemic and unprecedented changes within the working environment.

In 2018 across Great Britain, there were 595,000 cases of worked related stress, depression or anxiety, leading to 15.4 million work days lost

Join us as Paul will discuss how businesses and employees can work together to improve this crisis.

The workshop will look at :

  • Types of mental health conditions
  • Managing stress
  • How to build a positive mental health culture
  • Five steps to mental wellbeing

Our Promise

We put these events on for the creative community in the Midlands, there will be no sales pitches, just a morning of high quality content and networking with your peers.

This event is only open to  creatives, and previous feedback has told us that the open dialog surrounding the industry without customers being in the room is a real bonus to attending.

That first night 9 men turned up and spoke. They now have 69 groups meeting every Monday, and are continue to grow across the UK.
