Video: Managing the mental health of all during challenging times

David Beeney shares ways to improve mental health and resilience, stay connected with teams and remain productive and purposeful


David Beeney has committed the rest of his working life to reducing the stigma of mental health in the workplace. He enjoyed a successful career in newspapers and magazines for over 30 years. He always knew that he wanted to do something...

In this video, recorded at the HR and Employment Law in Education conference, David Beeney of Breaking the Silence shares his own mental health journey and explores coping strategies for managing our mental health in challenging circumstances.

  • How do we improve our OWN mental health and resilience to cope with exceptionally challenging times both at work and at home?
  • What are the best ways to stay emotionally connected with your teams now they are working remotely? How do you keep them engaged?
  • How do you protect your mental health during the coronavirus?

David himself suffered for over thirty years, not wanting to tell anyone that he was battling mental health problems. Believing that it would damage his career, he was embarrassed and scared of the potential consequences.

David now uses his experience and business knowledge to help organisations implement mental health and wellbeing strategies within the workplace. Get in touch to find out more.
