We held our first Wellbeing Festival from 7th-11th February 2022, designed by our Workforce Wellbeing Special Interest Group and Mental Health Special Interest Group. This event has CPD accreditation, complete the boxset and receive 15 CPD credits.
The sessions were designed to equip our members and non-members with a toolkit of resources and ideas to improve individual wellbeing and the wellbeing of their teams, family, and friends.
All of these sessions were recorded, and you can access them for as long as you need them via this section of our website.
You will also find links to apps, electronic resources, support, and events to promote and improve wellbeing and mental health.
Please follow us on Twitter to help us promote our #WellbeingWednesday initative: @IHM_Tweets.
The purpose of Wellbeing Wednesday is to share a resource, event/activity, inspirational post/quote, recorded piece, what members are doing, and promote looking after our emotional wellbeing, as well as physical health.
Register for our upcoming PowerHours to discuss how to promote wellbeing, why wellbeing matters, and relax, unwind, and learn a new skill.
