A FREE WEBINAR FROM IP INCLUSIVE AND JONATHAN’S VOICE
TO MARK MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK

THURSDAY 16 MAY 2024
12.30 – 1.30 PM

 

Attendees joined us for an IP Inclusive and Jonathan’s Voice event to mark Mental Health Awareness Week 2024. We welcomed back the wonderful Dr Sally Rose, whose session introduced attention practices and a way of approaching unpleasant experiences that can reduce anxiety and help us recover our equilibrium.

Our nervous systems and distracted minds fuel the fire of fear that manifests as anxiety and panic.  Mindfulness-based attention practices can help us to work with the thoughts and feelings of anxiety and panic that we all experience. By acknowledging the presence of fear, we can observe the reactions and guide our attention to safe and stabilising things in the present moment, which in turn can rein in the anxious mind and calm the fire of fear.

Sally guided us through some simple practices that can be used when we are calm and when we are anxious to build a new confidence in facing and responding to this aspect of all our lives.

Dr Sally Rose is a psychotherapist who specialises in applying attachment and trauma-informed theory and mindfulness-based self-awareness practice to working adults. She is particularly interested how the regulation of the nervous system which is important for both mental and physical wellbeing is also crucial to managing ourselves and optimising sustainable work performance.

 

 

 

Who’s 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.

 

Bring a guest!

At IP Inclusive we want to reach as many IP people as possible. Why not invite a guest to watch the webinar with you – 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? They’ll be most welcome!

 

Cost

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.
