Visit to the BBC Wellness Fair – Salford Quays

BBC North The Panic Room


Today I was invited to the BBC Wellness Fair in Media City, Salford, to talk about anxiety, stress and other issues related to mental health. I set up a small stall on the 5th floor of Quay House, right in the heart of the BBC Headquarters. I was fortunate enough to bump into some friends, too.

I was really privileged to hear lots of personal recounts of anxiety and stress from staff members, who felt comfortable to share aspects of their lives with me. I also really appreciated the interest and enthusiasm of some of the staff, who were understandably reluctant to talk, but took time to come to the stall and take a business card.

I really enjoyed my visit: the BBC building was beautiful and I hope to have more liason with them in the future.
