This Can Happen was launched in 2017 by three mental health champions with a passionate vision to support organisations of all sizes across the world, to empower workplace mental health.
This year, I had the enormous privilege of being invited to participate in their award-winning annual conference – which, due to the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, had to take place online, a format which proved enormously successful! With 1,850 delegates from 30 different countries and more than 250 companies, with 139 speakers, including headline guest Joe Wicks, it was a chance to learn, share and inspire on a global scale.
Topics at the conference were wide-ranging, and it was my absolute pleasure to appear on a panel with Ben Idle (MD, Deutsche Bank), Clare-Louise Knox (business psychologist She Her Thrive) and Ben Plowden (Director, TFL) talking about our personal experiences of Mental Health and Key Stages Across a Career.
We all experience different life stages as we traverse our career, with differing impacts on our mental health, and my fellow panellists and I (expertly facilitated by journalist and podcaster Yvette Caster) explored the important question: How can employers support us during this journey?
