As part of mental health awareness week in May, the Roseland Partners team joined an online mental health lesson with viewers from all over the world, led by mental health advocate Michelle Morgan – and helped break a world record for views of a mental health session in the process! Personal stories, explanations and useful tools were shared.
Thoughts from our intern, Gabriella Fajemirokun: Through her work, Michelle aims to break down the stigma around mental health issues, normalise speaking about them, and encourage us to give our mental health the same attention as we do our physical health. By sharing and owning our stories, it will help other people share theirs – including at work. Burnout from work / work-related stress is the most common form of stress, with 79% of UK adults experiencing it. Many topics were discussed during the session, and my main takeaway was the theme of loneliness and the irony of it, as it is something that we can all connect and relate to. Michelle stated that it is her mission to make mental health an everyday conversation and I hope we are all able to make that transformation eventually.
