Announcing EventWell’s new wellbeing and mental health bitesize webinars, designed to educate and develop understanding of the importance of self-care, especially in the events industry.
1 in 3 event professionals will experience diagnosable mental ill health each year, and this is increasingly becoming a normal part of life, with the World Health Organisation forecasting that depression will be the leading cause of the global burden of disease by 2030, so it has never been more important for us to invest in our physical and mental health than now.
Know your worth: When you avoid things that make you feel physically and mentally well, you deplete your confidence and self-esteem.
Self-care is important to maintain a healthy relationship with yourself as it produces positive feelings and boosts your confidence and self-esteem.
Also, self-care is necessary to remind yourself, and others, that you and your needs are important too.
EventWell’s bitesize webinars aim to educate on all areas of self-care, to equip you with the tools and knowledge you need to make better decisions when it comes to your health and wellbeing.
All profits from our events are invested into the charitable arm of our social enterprise, supporting our funded projects including #EventWell20 and our #EWIlluminate Education Programme.
Our upcoming webinars (and future live open workshops) are listed for you below:
