Surviving or Thriving: Mental Health Awareness Week event

Kilburn & Strode and IP Inclusive are delighted to invite you to an event on Thursday 11th May, during Mental Health Awareness Week.

The event will cover what steps we can each take to thrive, rather than just survive, by looking after our mental health and building resilience to cope with the demands of life.

This event is open to everyone, including fee earners and support staff. We encourage as many IP professionals to attend and hopefully take back insights and learning to their places of work.

Where: Kilburn & Strode, 20 Red Lion Street, London, WC1R 4PJ

When: Thursday 11th May from 5.30pm. Panel discussion and Q&A will start at 6pm, close and refreshments at 7pm

Reserve your place: here
