Mental Health Conference to be Held in Aberystwyth Will Raise Money for Local Charities

May 14, 2019


For Mental Health Awareness Week 2019, commercial law firm Darwin Gray and business support consultants Mabis have launched a mental health conference to take place in the summer.

Titled “Taking Care of Business: Mental Health at Work”, the conference will be held in the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth on Wednesday 10 July and will be aimed at both individuals as well as businesses and organisations looking to tackle, manage, or improve mental health in the workplace.

All profits from the conference will be donated to local mental health charities Mind Aberystwyth and The DPJ Foundation.

The one-day conference will feature expert speakers from across Wales and the UK, who will be covering various aspects of mental health including mindful employment, mental health strategy, financial wellbeing and mental health first aid. There will be opportunities to attend taster sophrology sessions as well as employment law and HR advice clinics.

You can find the full conference programme here.

Head of Employment & HR at Darwin Gray, Fflur Jones said:

“We are excited to be launching the conference in partnership with Mabis. We have been delighted with the response so far from partners and supporters to help put together a programme of thought-provoking sessions. Mental health is becoming more prevalent in the mind of the employer; however, there are still many challenges and approaches to consider when managing mental health for employees, both in and out of the workplace. I am looking forward to hearing from the wide range of experts on 10 July.”

HR Director at Mabis, Corinna Lloyd-Jones said:

“Good workplace mental wellbeing and effective people management and development practices are intrinsically linked. Employers whom invest in improving mental health at work report significant business benefits, including higher workforce motivation, engagement and creativity, resulting in better performance and productivity. We are therefore delighted to be working with Darwin Gray in launching this new conference which will be an excellent opportunity to take a closer look at how good mental health is good for business as well as people, in addition to supporting two instrumental Welsh mental health charities.”

The conference will culminate in a panel of experts, providing the opportunity for open questions and collaborative thinking to be shared as the floor is opened up to attendees.
