Job Title:
Founder & CEO
Mind Health And Wellbeing Limited

Christine has a passion for finding ways to lower the levels of anxiety and stress suffered by students, having personally experienced the impact that the stress of education can have on health with her own daughter. She believes in prevention and finding ways to reach a balance between education and health to avoid suffering from burnout. Christine’s interest in reducing stress for students has also led her into expanding her support into helping and encouraging others who work in some of the most stressful sectors. 

Sharing tools and techniques, insights, and knowledge to help reduce anxiety and stress, Christine is encouraging everyone to build their own personal resilience tool kit. With those tools being specific to their own personal needs. 

Helping people to feel more able and more confident in going some way to supporting their own mental health needs whilst going through life’s inevitable ups and downs, Christine has created and developed a series of talks and workshops to share the importance of taking your own self-care seriously. She has been a speaker on webinars for online conference events for raising awareness and supporting NHS staff and other medical professionals primarily in the pharmaceutical sector for the need to put their own self-care back in the frame and to take their health and wellbeing seriously. 

Christine has previously worked for the NHS in the Women and Children’s Directorate as the Medical Workforce Officer supporting both obstetrics & gynaecology and paediatrics. Later working in CAMHS and then in the Executive Directorate as the Compliance & Corporate Support Officer. This role involved working with the Clinical Management Team, the Hospital Management Committee, and the Board of Governors.

Christine has been a lifelong learner and a researcher through her love of books, adding to her life experiences. Further supporting as a Mental Health First Aider and Wellbeing Champion in her daily life. As a mental health and wellbeing advocate, Christine has also created a de-stress tool for students and others to use as a coping mechanism, providing a safe space to write out your thoughts, feelings and process your emotions, reducing anxiety and stress.

Practice sessions are available and you will be sent an invitation to join one of our delegate practice sessions. These are optional but great if you are unsure of whether your camera and microphone will work on Zoom. We hold several one hour practice sessions across the week when a member of SBK Healthcare staff will be waiting in Zoom to assist you. Please do pop in, say hello and make sure you are all set for the day.

On the day, when registration starts, you will be able to join the conference by initially entering a waiting room when there may be a short wait. In groups of between 6-10 people, you will be admitted into the main conference room to be greeted by a member of SBK staff. In the same group you will be taken into a breakout room and asked to turn on your video and microphone. A member of the SBK team will get your group started with some orientation tasks and ‘ice breaker’ topics, before leaving you to network.

When you are automatically brought back into the conference room for the start of the conference, you will be asked to turn off your camera and microphone so that the chair can start the forum. During each presentation you will be able to ask questions in the chat box function. The forum will include screen breaks, as well as topic themed interactive sessions which will take place in the breakout rooms.
