This time with a 5* event rider, aspiring to create an on-line mental health & well-being resource for all horse riders, similar to Grooms Minds and Employers Minds. Watch this space for developments but its ETD is Time to Talk day 2020!
A German on-line magazine and community for women, on mental health matters. I’m so pleased they found me and got in touch! And….they’d like more after this one. Link below.
That every 40 seconds someone loses their life to suicide is a sobering thought. I could have been one of those many years ago. My attempts failed. I was helped and fully recovered. So, take a moment today to pause and think……are you OK? are those around you OK? And if you sense something's amiss, ask, and ask twice. You could just be the difference that makes a difference….as someone once was for me.
Was a great honour and an amazing and insightful event too. Feedback was humbling and is why I do what I do.
Collaborating this time with Equestrian Employers Association (EEA) to create their online mental health & well-being resource, akin to Grooms Minds launched on 2018’s World Mental Health Day. My passions - people, horses and mental health – proudly combined again.
……..media – raising awareness for its savvy use?
In the equine world too with Horse & Hound’s article featuring myself as an equestrian owner and coach.
…..re this Time to Talk Day 7 February 2019. With a zipped mouth, Zippy’s a great metaphor for how much/little we say. While great mental health awareness events take place around the country, perhaps take the opportunity for gentle, kind, ‘you ok?’ self-talk . A few moments checking-in how you are; how’re you doing, feeling, thinking, behaving etc. Perhaps a top-to-toe self ‘audit’ for any ‘personal clues and cues’ that might indicate whether any changes, tweaks, adjustments are needed to get you to how, or back to, where you’d like to be. Perhaps Time to Talk isn’t just once a year, it’s throughout the year.
Equine collaborations continue…
With the Equine Employers Association to deliver Employers Minds, a similar on-line resource to The British Grooms Association’s Grooms Minds (see below) launched on World Mental Health Day 2018 as part of pioneering mental health and well-being projects in the equine industry.
… includes mine on mental health matters. There I share what I’ll be watching - the growing development of mental health technology and what affect will Generation Z have in the workplace – and my hope for 2019 – the growing shift from awareness towards practical action, from information into inform-action continues and what will businesses practically do to maintain and/or improve performance and productivity through mental health best practice?
…..was my piece for the Institute of Directors’, members’ only “ Productivity Guide”. I was privileged to contribute on the impact mental health has on performance and productivity. It’s a member only piece but points considered were:
What is the link between mental health/productivity?
What are your experiences of how it impacts businesses/what do they get wrong?
What can business leaders practically do to improve their productivity through mental health best practice?
This recruitment specialist’s annual, innovative event, where I delivered ‘Let’s talk mental health’, sharing my story with focus on looking after our mental health and how to have ‘those’ conversations.
…..was the intriguing title for a thought provoking, yet practical webinar I delivered on behalf of Employee Matters to Deloitte.
I was privileged to be part of this campaign, speaking at their London offices on 15 October, about my story, why I didn’t talk and what we can all do differently to encourage ‘Let’s talk mental health’.
