‘The Antidote to Burnout’: Energx, UnLtd, IMAA and Never Not Creative launch free mental wellbeing training for small business and freelancers
In support of Mental Health Awareness month, Energx is partnering with UnLtd, Never Not Creative, and the Independent Media Agencies of Australia (IMAA) to provide FREE mental health training for small companies and freelancers. ‘How To Boost Your Happy Hormones’ will be hosted by TEDx speaker, mental health advocate and CEO of Energx, Sean Hall (pictured), on Friday October 22nd at 9am AEDT.
Hall’s masterclass will delve into the anti-burnout skill of ‘Energy Intelligence’, with practical strategies to get your happy hormones flowing, boost mood and disrupt feelings of stress and overwhelm.
The collaboration was created to address the training gap for small businesses and freelancers with limited access to comprehensive mental health training. The free session is available to companies with less than 20 people or freelancers and is being pushed out through the IMAA and Never Not Creative networks.
Says IMAA General Manager Sam Buchanan: “Mental health and wellbeing is having an impact on all parts of our industry and it’s incumbent upon us as leaders to offer support and training for as many people as possible.
“Independent media agencies comprise a significant part of our industry. We’re grateful to Energx for this pro bono support and are proud to have partnered with UnLtd and Never Not Creative on this great initiative to boost the mental wellbeing of independent agencies and freelancers across the industry.”
Adds Energx CEO Sean Hall: “We know that burnout, stress, anxiety and depression are crushing for creativity.”
“The aim of this masterclass is to be an antidote to the chaos and equip those individuals who may have limited access to training resources, with useful tools proven to support their mental health. The topic of wellbeing can be overwhelming itself, so we make the science accessible by teaching people the places to start that will immediately impact their energy levels and ultimately support their creativity.”
