Mental health, Webinars

A free webinar from IP Inclusive and Jonathan’s Voice
to mark Stress Awareness Month

Thursday 20 April 2023
12.30 – 1.30 pm



There is much written about mental health and looking after ourselves, as well as about speaking with colleagues and friends. There is less written about how we might do that and, once we’ve started the conversation, where we go from there.

Attendees joined us for an IP Inclusive and Jonathan’s Voice event during Stress Awareness Month this April. It saw the return of mental health experts Mark Fudge and Andrew Reeves, who led an excellent discussion in our September 2022 webinarΒ  “Darkness to hope” to mark World Suicide Prevention Day.

Mark and Andrew have been talking about mental health with a wide range of people for over 30 years each. In this session they looked at ways of opening a conversation about mental health and some of the key skills that might be helpful in supporting people to talk. And they answered the question that often concerns people the most: once we are talking, what do we do next?


More about the speakers

  • Professor Andrew Reeves is a Professor in Counselling Professions and Mental Health and a BACP Senior Registered Counsellor/Psychotherapist.
  • Mark Fudge has worked as a counsellor within higher education for 20 years and previously had a career in health development.


Who was it for?

This event was for all UK-based IP professionals who are interested in mental wellbeing. We don’t mind where you work, what role you play there or what career level you’re at: this is an important topic, which touches many and matters to all of us.

We also encouraged people to invite a guest to watch the webinar with them – someone in a different role or at a different career level, perhaps; an ally or potential ally; or a colleague who’s not yet involved with IP Inclusive.


Follow-up resources

A recording of the main parts of the webinar (excluding the Q&A session) is available here. You may also be interested in this report on our News and Features page.



This event was free. So are all our resources. The Jonathan’s Voice events and resources are also free at the point of delivery.

That said, both organisations do need money to keep the show on the road, so if you enjoyed the event please consider contributing. For more information, visit the IP Inclusive fundraising page or the Jonathan’s Voice donations page.
