Where’s your head at? Wellbeing, work, and mental health

From maintaining a healthy work life balance and managing stressful situations to struggling with mental health, wellbeing has never been more in the spotlight.  Join us in September as we focus on the challenges faced by women in tax, and explore tools, tips and techniques to develop greater self-awareness, and to support yourself and others”

We will have insights from a number of different perspectives, including:

  • Laura Cunningham from HMRC, who will share her own experience of balancing home and work life and the stresses this can bring
  • Nancy Tucker – the author of “That was when people started to worry”, which looks at mental illness in young women
  • Justine Thorpe from the EY Mental Health Network, to share her experience and help available through workplaces.

Sign up at the Eventbrite link – and we look forward to welcoming you to what should be a really engaging and relevant evening.
