> Session 2: Developing Mental Fitness in Early Careers Talent

Ruth Cooper-Dickson is the founder and Managing Director of Champs: a global mental wealth and wellbeing consultancy for forward-thinking businesses who want to build a thriving culture of wellness at work. Ruth and her team bring difficult subjects like workplace mental health to life… without the dry presentations, boring workshops or cringe-inducing role play!

There are increasing levels of reported mental health disclosure at Higher Education institutions and the transition from education to working life can be a huge trigger for stress. In 2017, 74% of people were so stressed that they felt overwhelmed or unable to cope. Champs has created a Mental Fitness programme for early careers talent to build resilience, recognise the signs of being overwhelmed and how to build a personal tool-box to manage your mental wealth.
