BeNeLux Business Council has partnered with Swiss Business Council to offer you this webinar on "Breaking the Stigma on Mental Health & Addiction"

Mental Health & Addiction are interconnected. Mental disorders such as anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress may lead to addiction, yet there is always a chance to minimize the consequences and avoid a more complicated situation through preventive measures.

In this session, our guest speakers will help the audience better understand this link, what is happening physically and mentally, what are the risk factors, how addiction manifests, what are the issues and possible consequences connected. But also, not to be too grim - what can be done about it.

The audience will have an overview of what are the options for help and how to find a suitable support and solution for the individual and their family.
The main purpose is to engage the audience and make it easy to consume i.e. not too medical.
