The InsideOut Mental Health AwardsCelebrating our mental health and the people and organisations who champion it
It has been a genuine privilege to hear the stories from our role models of how being open about their lived experience of mental ill-health has resulted in positive culture change in their organisations.
This has inspired us to launch the InsideOut Mental Health Awards which will be held on 26 March 2020. Promoted by Rob Stephenson and Chris Cummings (MD of Wellbeing @ Work events), the evening will be a unique experience of celebration, networking, entertainment and dancing with the industry’s finest.
Shortlisted entries will be announced on Friday 24 January. Tickets will be on general release on Monday 3 February. For table enquires see here.
