Mental health in the spotlight for network’s presentation

Gail McKay


The way in which business people are coping during the pandemic and its effects on mental health will be explored in an online presentation called Who Knew: The New Normal.

The talk on Thursday, September 17 will be delivered by mental health instructor Gail McKay, who runs Swindon-based Integra Wellbeing.

She’ll be presenting to the weekly Swindon Business Village networking group, which meets online every Thursday from 8am to 9am.

Gail’s talk will cover how to recognise the changes that have occurred – both the obvious and the more subtle; how to get the best result for your business in the current climate; what the benefits are of the changes to our lifestyles; and what we can do about our own fears and anxieties at this time.

“I’m a qualified mental health instructor for both MHFA England and the British Safety Council, and as a small business owner I understand the pressures that have been put on business people during this pandemic,” said Gail.

The event costs just £5 to attend, and attendees also get the chance to network and deliver a one-minute introduction to their business.

Swindon Business Village meetings aren’t limited to speaker-only events. The varying formats include business problem-solving sessions and focused networking sessions.
