CITY Community Trust are hosting a series of B2B networking seminars.
The next event will take place on Thursday 19th September between 2pm and 4pm.
There will be plenty of time for networking, plus a highly informative health and wellbeing seminar. This event will feature Gill Hayes talking about Depression and Suicide: Why We Need To Talk.
In 2017, Gill shared the story of her suicide attempt at TEDxExeter in an attempt to spread hope to others with depression and to challenge some of the beliefs around mental illness. The overwhelming response to her talk made her realise that in sharing her experience, she could really make a difference to people’s lives, shining a spotlight on an often taboo subject.
Gill will talk about her story, a few facts and figures on the scale of the problem and then what we can do about it, specifically how to look after our mental health and how to spot early warning signs both in ourselves and others. Action to Prevent Suicide will also be presenting on the work they do training suicide first aiders.
Our sponsors, Cartridges Law will also be on hand to talk you through any legal and HR issues around mental health in the workplace.
Cost £15 per person to include tea/coffee and cake
