The recent UK Mental Health Awareness Week ran from 14th to 20th May 2018, helping to increase understanding and reduce stigma surrounding psychological conditions.
Keeping mental health, or mind health, in balance is something we believe at IF Agency needs to be sustained all year round. A number of the IF Agency team recently attended MPA Thrive, a unique event designed to empower people to flourish both as individuals and at work in an era when one of the most daunting challenges is achieving work life balance.
Stuart Hornby, Client Services Director at IF Agency,
shares his experience from attending MPA Thrive.
“As part of Mental Health Awareness Week I was lucky enough to spend an inspiring day at the MPA Thrive event. The day was focused on positivity and strategies to support mindset. There was a fantastic mixture of panelists and keynote speakers including leading figures from the world of business, health and mindfulness. Discussions covered a really broad range of topics from ways to build a more positive and happy workplace to self-love and male suicide."
“In an industry that is often all about egos and at times can be very superficial the takeout’s of the day for me are that talking honestly to each other about how we are or have felt is so important. We all have baggage that we are carrying and most people are fighting their own little battles, so if we can all be a little kinder, supportive and caring for each other it can only be a good thing.
Cheers Team MPA for an all-round great day!”
