Mental Health Awareness Week Breakfast, 17 May

The City of London Corporation invites you to a Panel Discussion and Networking Breakfast Reception to mark Mental Health Awareness Week

Wednesday, 17 May 2023 from 8.00 am – 10.00 am
Guildhall, London EC2V 7HH

Mental Health Awareness Week is an ideal time for us all to think about mental health, tackle stigma, and find out how we can create a society that prevents mental health problems from developing and protects our mental well-being. This year’s theme is anxiety – a normal emotion in us all, but sometimes it can get out of control and become a mental health problem.

The discussion will aim to increase people’s awareness and understanding of anxiety by providing information on the things that can help prevent it from becoming a problem and what options are available to those who need further help. Guests will hear from speakers about their professional experiences with an opportunity to ask questions during the session.

Moderated by:
Anastasia Vinnikova, Head of Workplace Wellbeing, City Mental Health Alliance

Speakers include:
– Ria Bernard, Chief Executive, Action for Stammering Children
– Andrew Horobin, Deputy Borough Director for Adult Mental Health Services in Hackney
and the City of London, East London NHS Foundation Trust
– Lea Milligan, Chief Executive Officer, MQ Mental Health Research
