Together Stronger: a collective approach to Mental Health

This has been postponed until May.

Throughout the pandemic, mental health has been a key issue for our members. Whether freelance or staff, working from home or another workplace, everyone has experienced challenges to their mental health.

The NUJ has organised this virtual conference to support the mental health of all members through a mix of keynote speakers and interactive workshops on a range of topics.

Key themes include:

• taking a collective approach to looking after mental health

• how to recognise mental distress

• managing trauma

• a health and safety approach to looking after mental health for freelance workers and employees

There will be plenty for you to take away from the day, whether as an individual or a rep.

You can find out more and book your place  on the Eventbrite website

There are five breakout sessions in the morning and repeated in the afternoon. You may choose to attend one session in the morning and another in the afternoon.
