We run a range of informal and formal events around mental health and wellbeing. Most of these events are publicised through our website, but our informal drop in sessions are through email registration only.
The drop in sessions are open to all planners and are hosted by RTPI Yorkshire. They are led by RTPI Yorkshire Chair Derek McKenzie, who is also an experienced volunteer with the Samaritans. They are a great opportunity for planners to share how they have been coping during the pandemic as well as providing an opportunity to chat about how planning processes have changed, for example though online committees. These events are informal opportunities for sharing experiences and are not an alternative to professional counselling.
The next events take place on 3 November and 8 December between 12:30 and 13:30. If you're interested bring a sandwich and some proper Yorkshire tea and join the conversation. Registration is by email to [email protected]. Places are limited and these events are very popular.
