It’s estimated that 1 in 6 people in the UK suffers from ongoing anxiety problems. However, there’s still so much stigma surrounding the issue, that it rarely gets discussed openly. This has resulted in people with anxiety feeling like they have to suffer in silence, and employers not fully understanding the condition.

In Laura’s talk, she’ll share her personal experience of dealing with an anxiety disorder and how it impacted her working life. By openly discussing this issue, she hopes to diffuse some common misunderstandings of the condition, share some tips on how anxiety sufferers can help themselves and what workplaces can do to be supportive of them, and give people the confidence to communicate mental health issues.
