Last Thursday, delegates discussed putting mental health awareness into action
At time when the UK was about to enter what Boris Johnson called a day later ‘the worst public health crisis for a generation', it was fitting that the COVER Mental Health & Wellbeing Summit highlighted the importance of looking after ourselves and others around us at a time of uncertainty.
A range of expert speakers from across the insurance and mental health landscape attended 99 City Road conference centre to explore how our industry can better support the mental health and wellbeing of individuals and employees.
They discussed issues such as grief, burnout, financial health, mindfulness and nutrition, as well as using the right language around mental health, underwriting and access to insurance for those with a history of mental illness.
Presentations and panels throughout the day examined the way organisations approach workplace wellbeing, by digging into the cultural changes employers can make within organisations to support their staff over the long-term.
A full review of the event is coming soon and video content from the day will also be made available.
