Event description

Description

Thrive in the City are passionate about creating a safe, creative, inspiring and physical space for workers and residents in the City of London. Outside of the normal working environment, the space will enable people to be who they are, provide choice, create support networks and leave behind the stigma, hierarchy and pressures of everyday working life.

But before we do that we first need to know what City workers and residents want and what they need. ‘Thrive in the City’ is a programme of events celebrating Mental Health in the City on 27 November 2017 and is being curated in collaboration with Business in the Community, Business Healthy, Mind, Thrive LDN, Minds@Work, City Mental Health Alliance, Team London Bridge and the Dragon Café.

We believe that providing ‘choice’ is an important component to support our mental wellbeing. Our focus is specifically around creating ‘choice’ to both prevent mental ill-health and to offer choice in ways we can support our recovery. Over 60 practitioners and 20 venues have generously donated their time and space on the day for free to explore ways we can offer that ‘choice’ to support ourselves, our friends and our colleagues in the City with their mental wellbeing.

All we ask in return is for you to book onto a free ‘Thrive in the City’ session and give us feedback on the session you attended.


08.30 – 09.30 Dr Tamara Russell (www.mindfulnesscentreofexcellence.com )

In this workshop Tamara will provide a high-level overview of “mindfulness” in society. Busting mindfulness myths, she will share a neurocognitive model of mindfulness. A applied practice that you can take away and implement immediately will be used to illustrate key learning points.

12.00 - 13.30 Seminar & Panel: Transitioning to the workplace – bringing your whole self to work – Chaired by Richard Martin (byrne-dean).
