Details of all speakers
The speaker appearing after Dr Linda is Mark Henick, a mental health expert who shared his incredible journey with mental illness and suicide, and helped us refocus our attention on hope, recovery and how to ask for help when we need it most.
The event ends with Dr. Aaron Balick, a psychotherapist and cultural theorist who began his speech with a deeply relaxing re-centering practice that required focus and deep breathing. He questioned whether we where holding space for ourselves, and how we could create safe spaces for others while continuing to ground ourselves in times of unprecedented change.
Professor Adrian Furnham, who is renowned as one of the most productive psychologists in the world, delivered a pre-recording ahead of our virtual event to share insights on how businesses can help support their employees mental health during this period.
