Event Wellbeing Week 2023
Monday 18th – Friday 24th September
One in three event professionals struggle with their mental wellbeing every year, and many are not seeking help and support due to fear of how they may be perceived or treated.
The theme for Event Wellbeing Week 2023 is #EveryOneEveryDay, to raise awareness that each one of us, no matter who we are, have mental health, and that we can be influenced and impacted by our mental health at any time, and every day of our lives.
By learning to recognise this we can start to break down the stigmas and discrimination that exists still for so many.
Employers? – Event Wellbeing Week is the perfect opportunity to launch your mental health policy and plans for the next 12 months!
Individuals? – Event Wellbeing Week is the perfect opportunity to start a daily new thing or change for your self care and mental wellbeing!
We are asking all event employers to use event wellbeing week as a starting block to kick off your strategic plans for the next 12 months, an opportunity to present to and share with your team how you will be investing in their mental wellbeing for the next year.
We are asking all event professionals to use event wellbeing week as a starting block to trying something new, or restarting something old to invest daily in your self care.
Our mental wellbeing is more than just one week, it is every single day, so take the time to look at longer term vision and plans to make a difference and impact.
We are also asking all event professionals to Wear It, and all event venues to Light It…
Wear something or light up your buildings green for mental health awareness, or
rainbow for neurodiversity awareness, or
yellow (or orange) for suicide awareness
Which one is closet to your heart? Wear It or Light It and let’s continue to spread awareness and hold space for the mental wellbeing and inclusion of everyone, because it does not matter who you are…
WE ALL HAVE MENTAL HEALTH
