Worksmith Events: 
Not Too Early: Managing Mental Health in the Industry
High profile suicides have happened in our industry over the last 2 years, in particular.

What is mental health awareness?
How do you put it into practice in a day-to-day way in the industry?
How do we look after ourselves and each other?

When you work in hospo, you don’t want to get up too early, so Worksmith and Turnip Media have collaborated to bring you some leaders in their fields to share their experiences and tell their stories, at a reasonable hour. Each talk will offer a unique insight from members of and contributors to the food, drink and hospitality industries.

The cost to attend a Not Too Early talk is $20 and numbers are limited. (Free for Worksmith members). We’ll have tea, filter coffee and pastries from North Fitzroy’s Loafer Bread for the session.

When: 11:00am-12:00pm Monday, September 3, 2018
Where: Worksmith 450 Smith Street Collingwood
