FSB Mental Health & Well-Being Conference

FSB Mental Health & Well-Being Conference

FSB Merseyside & Cheshire are delighted to invite you to our first Mental Health and Well-Being Conference at The Brink in Liverpool as part of our activities for Mental Health Awareness Week. This event aims to inform, inspire, and support small businesses and the self-employed in the local area on this important issue.

The conference will have a particular focus on the support available for those suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and the ‘hidden gem’ skillset of the UK’s ex-service men and women as prospective employees and self-employed business owners.
