ESSA Future Focus Board launches Mental Health workshops for members

The Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) Future Focus Board, has announced the launch of three member events focusing on mental health and wellbeing amongst member company employees.

The events will be held at the following venues:

QEII London – 3 Feb, 2020
Manchester Central 6 Feb, 2020
Stoneleigh Park, Coventry 14 Feb, 2020

The ESSA Future Focus Board, a body launched in 2018 to ‘champion recruitment and retention of young talent in the event industry’, is running the workshops in collaboration with Stress Matters, a Mental Health First Aid approved training company. The workshops will be industry-focused, providing insight, education and real-world examples of ways to recognise the symptoms of stress and how to combat it.

The sessions available to ESSA members free of charge.

Jess Corbett, chair of the Future Focus Board said: “This is a response to research amongst ESSA members conducted by the ESSA Future Focus Board in 2019, each one is a full day course with great content and the opportunity to engage with other ESSA members.

“I would urge any ESSA member to book now onto one of the three workshops, places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.”
