What is Mad World?

Mad World is Europe’s only solutions-focused conference and exhibition with a clear mission: to eradicate stigma and spark a new era of mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.

We live in a “mad world”, an anxious world. Changes in the workplace are happening faster than ever before, digital disruption is the new norm, performance is the always-on aspiration, and the pressure is on to raise productivity.

Ambitions have never been greater. But with stress running high, energy levels low and a potential mental health crisis looming, there’s a growing sense of urgency about mental health pervading the business world.

Our involvement

Simplyhealth are very excited to be a track title sponsor of Mad World 2018. As part of our sponsorship we will be hosting a session with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development's own Rachel Suff, who will be discussing key findings from the latest CIPD health and wellbeing report and how these findings could impact mental health in the future.

Simplyhealth's Director of Corporate, Pam Whelan, will be hosting a roundtable with Royal Mail's Dr Shaun Davis in which we will be discussing the importance of line manager training and signposting to ensure recognition of the early signs of mental ill health. 

Don't forget to stop by and see us, we'll be talking about mental health at work and how an employee assisstance programme can help support your employees' mental wellbeing. We'll also have a selection of goodies to give away, so be sure to come over and say hi.

We look forward to seeing you there!
