How can we support our mental health while working in a busy hospitality environment? For this workshop, run by Kelly’s Cause, we’ll use a combination of discussion and practical exercises in order to explore our relationship with stress, looking after ourselves and speaking with others about mental health. Throughout the session, we’ll cover ideas for developing a strategic approach to self-care and conversation tips to create meaningful dialogues on mental health within your teams. There will be a short Q&A as part of this workshop.
