Back by popular demand: We’re hosting another Mental Health Marathon!

A few months ago, we gathered some of our top mental health experts to spend two entire days answering our users’ questions about stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, mood disorders, and so much more. We called it a Mental Health Marathon because it was exactly that! A revolving cast of experts spent nearly twelve straight hours providing support, guidance, and information on topics many of us are sometimes reluctant to talk about. They helped our users open up and gain insight into subjects like how we can help a loved one dealing with mental illness, what we can do to improve our own mental health, and how we can challenge social stigma.

The event was such a resounding success that we’ve decided to host another next month! It will run from 8AM-7PM ET (5AM-4PM PT) on October 23rd and 24th, in English and French respectively. Users can anonymously submit any mental health related question(s) they have through LifeSpeak’s Ask the Expert platform. Some of the topics our experts will cover include:

  • Mood disorders
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Combating stigma
  • Self-care and self-compassion
  • Difficult emotions
  • Mindfulness
  • … and so much more

The sessions will be moderated by LifeSpeak, and we will continuously populate the streams with fun polls, video content, and links to related content so participants can get as much out of the experience as possible. If your organization has LifeSpeak or you’d like to learn more, we encourage you to mention our Mental Health Marathon to your HR team.
