Wellbeing and Resilience : a chat with Mark Vincent
November 18, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm GMT
During this event, Mark Vincent will be sharing tools and coping techniques that will enhance our mental health, wellbeing and build emotional resilience. For this particular talk, we will be limiting the numbers to just 15 people as we want to create a safe envionment for people and open a discussion about this topic.
Taking steps to look after your wellbeing can help you deal with pressure, and reduce the impact that stress has on your life. This is sometimes called developing emotional resilience. Resilience is not just your ability to bounce back, but also your capacity to adapt in the face of challenging circumstances, whilst maintaining a stable mental wellbeing. Resilience isn't a personality trait – it's something that we can all take steps to achieve.
If you know someone that would benefit from learning some coping strategies during this very challenging time, then please forward this event.
Short Bio from Mark Vincent:-
I was brought up in Bristol and Cornwall and I studied Geology at Nottingham University in the early 70s. After working in that role for a while in London, and after a number of volunteer roles working with children and adults with disabilities, I ended up at St.Crispin Hospital undertaking the Psychiatric nursing course. I also undertook the General nursing course and then specialised in community work. After that I studied in York to be a nurse teacher before advancing up the academic ladder for a while before working in operational management for a number of years in Leicestershire. I returned to Northampton to the University in a variety of roles before retiring from there in 2014. From then I have continued my role as a Mental Health Act Hospital Manager at Northamptonshire Healthcare Foundation NHS Trust and for St. Andrew’s Healthcare . I was a Trustee of Together, a national mental health charity for 10 years. I currently volunteer at Hunsbury Library and I’m a member of the Duston Local History Society where I undertake research into a number of areas.
I have maintained a life long interest in mental health and well-being and I’m always happy to share my interests with others.
