The event is focused on improving mental health and is the largest ever gathering of organisations in the UK focused on mental health. In 2018 it was attended by HRH Duke of Cambridge and leading UK businesses such as; GlaxoSmithKline, Goldman Sachs, Accenture, Direct Line, Allen and Overy, and Bright Futures.
Our ambassadors Jonny Benjamin MBE and Neil Laybourn lead this event. In 2014, a social media campaign was run by Jonny with the help of one of our founding charities, Rethink Mental Illness. This helped him to find Neil, the stranger who had talked him out of jumping off a bridge when he was suicidal. Jonny and Neil are now award-winning mental health campaigners visiting schools, hospitals, prisons and workplaces across the UK to talk about mental health and suicide prevention.
The purpose of the event was to give immediate and practical solutions to help attendees champion mental health in the workplace. This also forms part of Mental Health UK’s mission, achieved through our training, consultancy and partnerships.

During the event we ran drop-in sessions for conference attendees, giving them the opportunity to hear different ways their workplace could improve mental health support. We offered practical models from other companies we have worked with and tacked a variety of workplace issues such as:
