Balancing Activism and Self-Care: Staying Sane for Another Day

The purpose of this webinar is to highlight the causes of the pressures of political life, whether it be in a trade union, political party or social justice movement. Pressures can become overwhelming to the point that we as individuals neglect our personal lives. Consequently, we do not think about how society can be structured differently to support emotional, physical and mental well-being for all people.

The webinar will attempt offer suggestions for societal changes which could result in robust emotional, physical and mental health for the 99%.
