Women, Mental Health and the Art of Feeling Better

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Hear from mental health professionals and experts through experience on how we can challenge the stigma around women’s mental health.

A fifth of women are reported to suffer from a mental health issue such as anxiety and depression, compared to one in eight men, with young women currently the highest risk group for mental health problems.

How does gender affect mental health care, why are women less likely to be taken seriously, and what can we do to change the status quo?

Speakers include model and activist Adwoa Aboah; founder of Recharge & Resist Cerian Jenkins; Mandy Stevens, who has been both an employee
and a patient of the NHS mental health programme; and Poppy Jaman, CEO of Mental Health First Aid England.

Chaired by journalist and political commentator Dr Frances Ryan.
