Is Mental Health Awareness Failing Society? - RSA

Is mental health awareness failing society?

Fellowship events / Research & Impact Event / Online


Online (via Zoom)

Join us for a talk focusing on the mental health crisis facing our society.

With our attention focused on the current emergency, our mental wellbeing has taken a further battering - in a country that was already at crisis point on mental health. Mental illnesses can sneak up on us and creating awareness is vital if we are to achieve a successful reset of our economy.

To help us explore this crucial subject, we'll be joined by Jon Manning. Jon has experienced living with mental health conditions for over 20 years and with a background in the commercial world, he set up Arthur Ellis to change the way mental health is managed throughout society, supporting thousands of people across the country through the 1:1 services and organisational training and support. He appears on radio, is a Fellow of the RSA, and has spoken at such venues as The Cambridge Union.

The talk will be exploring the following topics:

  • Why are the rates of mental health issues rising as we talk about them more?
  • What has brought the UK to the point of having some of the worst mental health crises in the world?
  • If nothing changes, people will continue to become unwell. What needs to improve within their individual lives and businesses? 

There will be opportunities during the event for Q&As.
