“Managing your mental health and sustaining positive wellbeing now and beyond Covid-19”

Continuing its series of initiatives to support its members’ businesses and health needs during Covid-19, HBAA is partnering with Eventwell and other industry experts in the latest of its Mental Health webinars which is taking place on Thursday 23 April at 4pm, webinar link is HERE

“Managing your Mental Health and sustaining positive wellbeing now and beyond Covid-19” will be a panel session followed by Q &A and it will address many powerful issues that have been prompted and elevated by the pandemic.

What do we need to do to sustain good mental health? How should we manage Zoom fatigue? What are the biggest risks to mental health when lockdown ends? How can we prepare mentally despite the uncertainty? Will the pressure in businesses to make up for lost time in Q3 and Q4 add to the stress? These are just some of the many important questions that the session will tackle.

Moderated by Helen Moon of Eventwell, the panel will include Leigh Cowlishaw, HBAA Board Member; Alex La Via of Live More Offline; Gavin Percy of Balancing Edges and Mark Maher of Boulevard Events and Chair, Eventwell.

Since lockdown, HBAA has been providing free webinars supporting Mental Health and will be promoting a new course “MHFA Mental Health Half Day Awareness” run by Balancing Edges in the future. To book on this course, please click HERE

HBAA has also created Mental Health Toolkits which are available HERE

Gavin Percy of Balancing Edges said: “Our people and ourselves need support to help us through such challenging and uncertain times now and beyond – toolkits needs to be as sharp as possible for us to thrive and survive.”

Leigh Cowlishaw says “HBAA has been championing Mental Health and Wellbeing as a board initiative for the last 18 months. It is become even more vital issue during these challenging times when there is so much uncertainty about timescales, about “the new norm” and about the future of our industry. It is crucial that we continue to look after ourselves and support our teams by providing access to resources and sharing knowledge to help today and tomorrow.

Things will be fine

With all operations at our London conference venues currently suspended and team members stuck indoors for the 5th week now, we recognise how important it is to sustain our mental health and if you are struggling we would encourage everyone including our colleagues and peers to register for the webinar.

We will eventually get over this global disaster and will hopefully be back in our event venues, conference rooms, training spaces and meeting rooms in no time, but until then we wish everyone strength and sanity. Stay safe everyone!
