Mental Health Matters

Listen to this article

Did you know that one in three #Eventprofs suffer from poor mental health? At EBL, we have long been focused on the importance of good mental health practices. Mental health is an issue that is close to our hearts. This is why we are supporting Mental Health UK. We’re on a mission to raise £5,000 for this incredible charity.

At #EBL23, Mental Health UK’s Claire Neal joined us to shed light on crucial aspects of mental health. Her insights highlighted why it’s essential for our community to support this cause. Now, we’re calling on all of you to unite with us in reaching our £5,000 target!

Neil Fagg, event director of Event Buyers Live, said: “Event Buyers Live has several values that we stand by. We support diversity, equality, and inclusivity and do all we can to ensure EBL is not only sustainable but also supportive and respectful of everyone’s needs.

“At EBL 2022, we ran a big mental health workshop that highlighted the great work being done on event sites to support crew welfare. It recognised good mental health practices in the workplace. The workshop was supported by Mental Health UK, a great charity that is doing great work.”

Fagg continued: “We want to continue supporting Mental Health UK, which is why we would like to raise money and fund their amazing work by asking everyone to make a small donation.

“Let’s stand together as an industry, support one another and make a meaningful impact on mental health. Visit our fundraising page, contribute, and be a part of the positive change we aim to create!”
