Event Details
This webcast, dedicated to World Mental Health Day 2021, is a collaboration between the Chartered Banker Institute and The Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment.


 Join us to hear our panellists and Chair discuss important issues relating to mental health and particularly how the pandemic has impacted on our emotional well-being.

Within the financial sector, what is being done to support individuals and keep this topic in the forefront of our everyday attitudes? At the core of ethical banking lies responsibility. We all have a part to play in supporting others and ourselves, a collective responsibility to better understand and share knowledge of mental health conditions and support techniques is encouraged by the Institute and wider financial community.

We hope that you can join us for this discussion, which will develop your knowledge of mental health and equip you with tools to implement in your organisation.
