Our second 'Charterhouse Inspires' event held at 20 Cavendish Square, London
The second event of the Charterhouse Inspires series took place in London on Monday focusing on the topic of mental health and wellbeing. The panel, who have experience of mental health from different perspectives, discussed the stigma of talking about mental health and why people should feel encouraged to speak about the topic.
The discussion also focused on cultural changes, including how social media has impacted on young people’s perception of the ‘perfect’ life. Perfection was also discussed in terms of the pressure on employees in the workplace, and that the expectation is to do their job quickly and without making mistakes. The event, which took place the week of World Mental Health Day, highlighted just how crucial it is for mental health to sit side-by-side with our physical health.
