What is mental toughness?

Mental Toughness is an aspect of our personality which determines how we deal with stress, pressure, opportunity and challenges. It is a valuable way of understanding why people act and respond the way they do when faced with events.
Every day we hear stories of how people are living with mental health problems. Everyone experiences “ups and downs” in their everyday life. Mental health problems affect 1 in 4 people. These problems can vary from depression, stress, anxiety to others such as schizophrenia. Reactions differ and can make you feel sad, angry, anxious, stressed, fearful or hopeless. Different events can trigger a variety of symptoms.
Understanding when someone might need help is a sensitive issue and people worry about what to say or do. We can all help support individuals who are experiencing a mental health problem, whether this is in or out of the workplace.

This conference will bring together global leaders on the assessment and development of mental toughness, mindset and resilience in individuals and organisations.

Guest speakers
• Gerry Hill, Founder of Feeding Unicorns and Founder of Resilify

• Neil Laughton, Managing Director of Laughton & Co Ltd
