SECE Mind co-hosts Mind Matters mental health conference

SECE Mind were kindly invited by Sadie Hopson, the founder of WeWorkWell, to co-host the Mind Matters conference this year. The conference took place on the 1st of November to celebrate International Stress Awareness Day at the Holiday Inn in Southend-on-Sea.

The event was a huge success bringing together speakers and expert exhibitors to educate, inform and inspire employers and employees in the ways that they can live a happier and healthier life. Development manager, Kristina Stazaker delivered a talk on 'creating a mentally healthy workplace for anxiety and depression' to kick off the day. The speaker list included Baiju Solanki, Mandie Holgate, Laura and Barry Ash, Steve Carr, Lara Murray, Nick Looby and Adrian Wright.

Sadie Hopson, who worked incredibly hard to bring together such a fantastic line-up, ended the day with her finishing thoughts on creating a resilient workplace. We were thrilled to be invited to work with her on this event and also proud to stand alongside these incredible ambassadors for positive workplace wellbeing. Thank you!
