Impactathon: We need to talk about feelings!

January 18 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free

18 January 2020.
Be there and make a difference!
Why is getting people talking about feelings important?

Public Health England reports that more than 8 in ten people experienced indicators of poor mental health in the last 12 months

Public Health England reports that 1 in 4 adults is inappropriately using prescription 3 medication for pain and mood

Up to 45% of all GP visits are in the category of Medically Unexplained Symptoms (like 4 ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Burnout).

Together these factors place the NHS under an enormous strain and cost individuals dearly in terms of their functional ability and quality of life.

We want to find out:
The true cost of not talking about feelings
The benefit of talking about feelings – how does talking about feelings work?
Share and collect people’s stories of experiences and feelings

Should I attend the Impactathon?
We need a wide variety of skills on the day. You don’t have to be working in the area of feelings or health (both physical and mental). Maybe this subject is important to you personally; you’re an enthusiast or want to make social change.
