To mark Mental Health Awareness Week in May, the FT hosted a series of sessions on mental health and wellbeing at its London headquarters. Speakers offered practical tips on keeping fit and healthy at work, and what the FT could do to create a more inclusive and understanding workplace. Staff also heard personal stories about combating the stigma of anxiety and depression.
Phil Dobson, founder of learning programme company, BrainWorkshops;
Rachel Kelly, best-selling writer, mental health campaigner and public speaker;
George Bettany, founder of mental health coaching company, Sanctus;
Geoff McDonald, founder of mental health awareness movement, Minds@Work.
The FT’s cake trolley went on tour around the building to encourage people to take time to come together and talk about mental health over tea and cake. Staff also participated in a charity bake off in support of Mind, a mental health charity.
