For many years poor mental health has been stigmatised, treated as a weakness and considered by many as far less important than poor physical health. Nowadays, the subject of mental health is much better understood and less of a taboo. Around the world the stigma is lifting.
Employers need to understand the long-term impacts of poor mental health on their employees and be proactive in offering effective solutions to help care for their people’s mental wellbeing.
You’re invited to join us on 11 October for AXA’s Virtual Health Days
– an insightful event exploring the theme: “Mental health, from stigma to major societal issue”
. Register below to get access to a series of podcasts, webinars and much more.
We’re delighted to be involved in this important event and share our insights on this ever-more significant issue.
Hear from Dr Leena Johns, Head of Health and Wellness at MAXIS GBN, alongside special guests from our EAP partner, ICAS. Andrew Davies, CEO, and Wiebke Welgemoed, COO, will join Dr Leena to discuss “Tackling the mental health impact of the COVID-19 crisis”
on Monday 11 October at 12:30pm CET
Poor mental health is one of the most neglected health problems around the world and one that is, unfortunately, often stigmatised and discriminated against. The panellists will take us around the world looking at some of the most interesting mental health trends and focusing on how employers can help de-stigmatise the issue of mental health for their workforces.
Also, by tuning in to the AXA Health Days event you will be able to hear on the "Once upon a mind: didactic content to understand mental health and wellbeing" room of the event website at anytime:
- Mattieu Rouot, CEO at MAXIS, speaking on the video “Mental health: how can global corporates tackle this invisible epidemic?”.
By being proactive and offering mental health solutions, multinationals can care for employees, even in the most stressful of times. Mattieu will explore the wellness solutions employers can look to implement to help tackle mental health problems in their workplace.

Mental health has been at the forefront of our minds throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. As employers begin to recognise the importance of caring for their employees’ mental wellbeing – just as they would their physical wellbeing – more and more multinationals are requesting mental health solutions. Has the pandemic helped push mental health up the agenda?
We can’t wait to see you there!
