Get Travel Talking: Stopping the Stigma

Get Travel Talking: Stopping the Stigma

With the personal and professional pressures of Covid unrelenting, our second Get Travel Talking seminar on 28 October hears from voices across travel - and beyond - around why it's so vital to speak out and tackle the stigma surrounding mental health head-on no matter what your role or level of seniority may be.

From business leaders to political advisors, no-one is immune from the mental health challenges of the last few months. Join us as we explore top tips to manage your own mental health and how senior figures of the travel industry (and the world of politics) are looking after themselves and those around them.
