Mental Health

Clockwise from top left: Anna Williamson, Alastair Campbell and Simon Weston

Mental health has gone from a taboo subject, to something organisations are finally taking seriously having recognised the importance of good mental health among their employees. There are a variety of speakers who discuss this subject from various angles.

Anna Williamson- Anna will be familiar to many as an actress and TV presenter, however her career was very nearly derailed due to her issues with anxiety. Having successfully developed coping mechanisms, she has written a book "Breaking Mad - The Insider's Guide to Conquering Anxiety" and is also a trained counsellor.

Alastair Campbell- Alastair has written a number of books about mental health and depression, often drawing on his own experiences, having suffered a breakdown in his twenties.

Simon Weston- While Simon is best known for rebuilding his life since suffering life changing physical injuries during the Falklands Conflict, they have also taken a mental toll on him, and he talks candidly about his experiences.
