The quarterly event series looks to remove stigma and encourage engagement around mental health by subverting traditional media-land events into an opportunity for real and productive mental health discussions.
The first event kicks off this Friday (October 9th, 2020) with a mental health themed quiz hosted by mental health advocate and creator of the Better Than Yesterday podcast, Osher Günsberg.
Henrick Isaksson, Regional Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand at Acast, said: “It’s been a tough year for many in agency land, but there is still reason to relax and celebrate. We wanted to move beyond the traditional media lunch or pub event to offer something that will help improve the lives of our agency partners in a fun and engaging way. This new mental health initiative is another way we’re hoping to give back and support the Clomid.”
Osher Günsberg, creator and host of the Better Than Yesterday podcast, said: “We all love a quiz – so why not use it as a way to discuss and reflect on our own mental health? It’s refreshing to see events like this popping up that help drive more meaningful conversations and industry engagement. Above all I hope that the quizes allow people to step back from their hectic lives and reconnect with their colleagues and friends.”
The first of Acast’s mental health events will be held on Friday 9th October from 12PM – 12:45PM. Register for the quiz by clicking attending to this event and represent your agency in 20 Questions with Osher. The person who answers the final question wins.
