CIPR International AGM – Mental Health in the PR Industry

According to The Drum, recent research into the PR profession has exposed that over a fifth of PRs have been diagnosed with a mental health condition, whilst 75% claimed that agency or consultancy communications was the most stressful sector. The CIPR’s State of PR research, which investigated the mental health implications of working within the communications sector, found that 21% of practitioners have been diagnosed with a mental health condition.

This year CIPR International will host its AGM panel discussion on the topic of mental health in the international workplace. Chaired by Rob Smith, Editor of Influence Magazine, the panellists (see below for details) will discuss the challenges faced by organisations and individuals in addressing mental health issues in the public relations industry worldwide. Opening remarks will be by CIPR President Emma Leech.

The panel debate will be preceded by our AGM where the committee for 2020 will be elected. The event will be followed by networking drinks and nibbles.


For CIPR members, attendance will bring 5 CPD points.

The event will start at 6.30 at Lansons Offices, 24a St John Street.
