Empowering People, Launching lives

Online lunch and learns

Join us for our monthly lunchtime sessions, to hear from and engage with experts from across the organisation.

Our ever popular Lunch and Learn series returns in the autumn for its third year. After looking at inclusive environments last year, this year each month we’ll be picking a key theme and looking at strategies to support. Topics include, eating, toileting, mental health and much more. To register for any of the sessions, click the links below, or see the full schedule with a brief overview of each webinar.

If there is a topic that’s not listed but you’d like to hear about, get in touch.

Masking and the impact on mental health

With Francesca Moore, Behaviour Analyst, and Alicia Robson, Therapy Assistant

Wednesday, 13th December, 12.30-1pm 

In this lunch and learn session, we will explore what masking is, the signs of masking, and the impacts of masking. Hear some personal experiences of masking at school and university from our speakers. We will then consider ways in which professionals and parents can support those who are masking to ‘unmask’, and prevent the negative impacts on mental health. Sign up now.
