W+K opens up on mental health

To mark this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week, we programmed a variety of workshops and talks to get everyone in the agency involved.

The week started with a Calm Workshop with Mauritz Klaff from The School of Life, which was followed by a ‘mindful marbling’ session with ‘conscious creative organisation’ Patternity. Weds saw Urban Wellness’ nutritionist Nicola Shubrook visit the agency to talk through the role nutrition has on mental wellbeing and the week ended with speaker and author Paul McGregor sharing his deeply personal story and tips on how to better support ourselves and others.

Artwork for the week was designed by W+K’s Kyle Ellis, who created an image palette to represent 16 emotions associated with mental health.

We owe a massive thanks to everyone involved – especially our lovely HR team for making everything happen.
