The Coronavirus pandemic has been a very stressful time for a lot of people and the last 13 months have been a testing time for all particularly managing isolation and continued uncertainty.
This uncertainty may lead to us feeling anxious or stressed. There is also some anxiety about returning to the ‘new normal’. Managing mental health & wellbeing awareness has never been more important.
Our “heads up” tool kit was launched to members in February 2020. The tool kit contains an ever-evolving variety of resources and advice, a library of links and case studies, and signposts to material for improving, maintaining and looking after our health. Our tool kit can help you find ways to look after your mental & physical health during this difficult period.
In the spirit of inclusion, we want to help the wider event industry professionals understand the factors that affect their mental health and to look out for their colleagues. Therefore, the tool kit will be made available to everyone, not just members.
This toolkit is very much a ‘live’ resource which we can adapt and update with any new initiatives or ideas therefore we welcome your input.
If you would like to input into this toolkit or contact us feel free to email us via email@example.com and use #headsupkit to show support on social.
Thank you and best wishes
