Dare to care

It’s easier to talk about a broken leg than mental health, but with this theme, we want to change that. Because it’s ok to not be ok.

Being sad, angry, frustrated or stressed is a natural part of life, but when you feel stuck in these feelings it can be reassuring to know that there are many ways to help you get through.

With this theme we will talk about how to create safe spaces for sharing and about techniques and tools for taking care of yourself, but also people close to you. Maybe it won’t solve the main issue, but hopefully it will support you and give you room to cope.  

Join us this spring and meet co-workers and a mental health professional, as well as a speaker who shares his methods for hacking brain chemistry. Welcome to a truly interesting theme that we hope will make you feel empowered and realise: You’re not alone. And caring, sharing and being there for each other can go a long way.
