Mental health is extremely important and in 2018, we (yes we!) are prioritising our mental health and self-care! With that being said, social enterprise, Half Full Not Empty have a fantastic event coming up that I implore you all to attend! Founded by the amazing Juanita Agboola, HFNE aims to equip young people with the necessary skills to look after their mental health and normalise discussions surrounding mental health.
HFNE will be hosting their official launch party on the 6th January 2018 to showcase what they do, how they do it and most importantly why they do it! The event will be both insightful and interactive, where you will be able to meet the fantastic team behind the enterprise and hear what is in store for 2018! Expect to hear from Jack Jacobs, an anorexia survivor, Bola Sol, who will be talking about the mentality we have towards money and mental health; inspirational spoken word delivered by artist Danielle Apenteng and hear from a panel of mental health advocates and professionals! On the panel will be:
· Jack Jacobs: entrepreneur, personal development coach & mental health advocate.
- Henrietta Adegoke: BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.
· Daniel Oluwatobi: a senior pathway manager in a cancer department in a NHS foundation & mental health advocate.
-Stacey Karkari: a senior occupational therapist for the NHS and beauty and lifestyle blogger
