Mental Health Awareness Week 2021: Mental Health and Wellbeing Show goes virtual to celebrate!
The Mental Health & Wellbeing Show Virtual aims to promote positive mental health through open conversation, promoting awareness and sharing real-life experiences.
To celebrate Mental Health Awareness Week, popular award-winning training and events company, Ajuda Training, are hosting a modern and state-of-the-art virtual event taking place on 20th May 2021 – the Mental Health & Wellbeing Show.
An event of this kind is much-needed across the UK and further afield, as according to Mental Health charity Mind “1 in 4 people experience mental health issues each year”. During the past year of unpredictability, anxiety and so many difficulties to overcome, we believe that more people will be struggling with their mental health than ever before. The team at Ajuda Training feel that this is an issue that needs to be addressed and discussesd as much as possible.
The virtual show is open for 30 days beginning on the 20th May, and will include over 70 on-demand webinars focused on topics such as coping with mental illness, ways to promote positive mental health, and how to support people around you who are suffering with ill mental health.
Alongside this is an exhibition with over 20 charities, organisations and companies promoting their helpful resources, services and initiatives designed to support positive mental health and wellbeing. There’s also a chat networking area where people can connect and share best practices for positive mental health.
To enter the exhibition is free, with full access to the webinars priced at £75+vat for 30 days of valuable CPD content.
Speakers on the day include:
Alastair Campbell – Politician and Mental Health Campaigner
Neville Southall – Former International Footballer and Mental Health Campaigner
Holly Bourne – Youth Mental Health Author
Hope Virgo – Eating Disorder Campaigner
Jonny Benjamin – Mental Health Campaigner
Company director Dawn Evans says: “Following such a difficult year for all, we could see there was a clear need for a bigger and more extensive event around mental health and wellbeing in the UK. The team at Ajuda always strive to provide our customers with the training and events that really matter to them, so we decided to create an event to accommodate the rising need for mental health and wellbeing training.”
