On Wednesday 12th, the IE Charity Club held their first solo event: the first of a speaker series, this time on the topic of Mental Health. With the wrap up of November and the work we did with the Movember Foundation, which raises awareness for men’s mental health, as well as testicular and prostate cancer, it felt like the most natural next step would be to build on Mental Health. This was also a topic that the IE community was interested in working on and hearing about, via a Charity Club survey.
We were pleased to have a speaker and founder of iFeel, an online interactive therapy service that links patients and professionals, as well as a psychologist who is pursuing her masters degree in eating disorders. In addition, we were honored to welcome two IE students who spoke about their experience with mental disorders, OCD and depression.
The combination of the professional and personal points of view lead to some great discussions and we believe it’s a good first step to #BreakTheStigma.
