Humour & Health
Living with a chronic disease is difficult at the best of times, add in the additional stresses of everyday life - like holding down a job, paying bills, raising a family, plus heartbreaking life moments like losing friends and family members, drug affordability, and consistent monitoring of your health and it’s no wonder that many chronic diseases are now extended to show their impact on mental health and general wellbeing.
As part of Mental Health Awareness Month, we are pleased to present this session ‘Humour & Health’, proudly supported by Mediplast. Please join your host CFA CEO, Jo Armstrong along with Comedian Blake Pavey and Psychologist Chris Thompson as they discuss mental health, how we each cope differently, and steps we can take to support positive well-being.
Mental Health Month is celebrated each year in October. We encourage everyone to think about your own mental health and wellbeing, regardless of whether you may have a lived experience of mental illness or not. It gives us the opportunity to understand the importance of good mental health in our everyday lives and encourages help-seeking behaviours when needed.
