Reminder: Press Award winner Bryony Gordon to host mental health workshop for journalists

Posted on: April 28, 2020 by Mariella Brown

Women in Journalism and the Journalists’ Charity are hosting a workshop tonight to support journalists’ mental health through the coronavirus crisis.

Telegraph columnist, author and campaigner Bryony Gordon – winner of this year’s Journalists’ Charity Press Award – will answer questions on topics such as working from home, writing on mental health and coping during isolation.

Gordon received a SoE Press Award earlier this month for her work as a mental health ambassador; in particular for sharing her personal insights of mental wellbeing through her columns, podcasts and books.

The workshop will take place today (Tuesday 28 April) from 5.30pm-6.30pm and has extended capacity for the free online session to accommodate demand.

Previous WIJ workshops to support journalists virtually through home-working have included a Zoom meet up with Louise Chunn, former InStyle and Good Housekeeping editor and founder of Welldoing.org wellbeing site, who discussed how to cope with the stresses and strains of living through the pandemic.
