GMC Mental Health Network virtual talk with Jonny Benjamin and Zac Newman – 8th October 2020
In October 2020, we reached out to Jonny and Zac to deliver a talk to our network members to recognise World Mental Health Day (10th October 2020). It has been an exceptionally challenging year for all, and so the network wanted to deliver an inspiring session to members to help encourage more conversations around mental health and to provide some tools to help manage mental health and wellbeing during this time.
We’d like to say thank you to Jonny for sharing your personal journey with mental illness with us – it was powerful, honest and inspiring. We really think this will help more colleagues to open up about their mental health and encourage others to recognise when teammates may be struggling.
And thank you to Zac for sharing practical methods for how we can all look after our wellbeing, both during this difficult time and beyond. Taking a moment for some mindfulness meditation was really welcomed during our busy working day.
We received a lot of positive feedback from our network members about how people were moved, inspired and grateful for your talk. We would really like to keep in touch and work with you again in the future.
