Event 3: Entstigmatisierung psychischer Probleme am Arbeitsplatz: Wer, warum und wie?, 13. Oktober, 18:30 Uhr


MakeSense Berlin and tbd* have teamed up for a digital event series focused on mental health and well-being in the workplace. The series will foster an open dialogue to better understand the connections between work, mental health, and well-being. Employees, leaders, decision makers, freelancers, and social entrepreneurs interested in improving workplace well-being and destigmatising mental health issues are invited to be part of the conversation. This panel discussion is the first event in the three-part series. 

About the event 

What are the biggest impacts on mental health in the workplace? What is needed in order to create a healthy, productive work environment? How can you improve your wellbeing at work? In this panel discussion, we’ll explore these topics and more with three impact professionals and mental health experts. We’ll learn from their personal and professional experiences surrounding mental health at work and gain actionable tips for improving mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. 

In addition to a discussion, you will have the chance to engage in an interactive Q&A exchange with the panelists.

This event is for anyone who wants to gain actionable insights for creating a healthier, more inclusive workplace and/or improving their own mental health at work.
