Workplace Wellbeing by Design 2020 charity partner Frazzled Cafe will be hosting our ‘de-frazzle’ zone, offering delegates the opportunity to stop by throughout the day to take part in some ‘mindful moments’; connect with other delegates; and re-energise between sessions.
You will also have the opportunity to speak with some of their representatives and meeting facilitators (who are also trained in Mental Health First Aid) to find out more about Frazzled Cafe and how they can help support your organisation and local community.
Ruby Wax, founder of Frazzled Cafe, will be attending the 2020 Workplace Wellbeing by Design and signing copies of her book ‘How to Be Human – The Manual’ in the de-frazzle zone.

If you would like to schedule a time to meet with the Frazzled Cafe management team on the day and discuss how they can help you to support your employees and local communities in more detail, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We live in a time where a life crammed to the hilt is considered a success story, yet so many of us are struggling with the pressure and are afraid to admit it.
1 in 6 people in the UK report experiencing a common mental health problem such as anxiety or depression in any given week; and evidence suggests that 12.7% of all sickness absence days in the UK can be attributed to mental health conditions. That’s 91 million working days lost annually, with stress, anxiety and depression the biggest causes.
Frazzled Cafe is a registered charity founded by Ruby Wax, OBE, in response to this modern epidemic. We run facilitated peer support meetings across the UK where people who are feeling frazzled and overwhelmed by the stresses of modern life can come together to talk openly, connect and feel heard. We provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment where it’s ok, to not be ok.
Studies have proven that the best way to beat stress is to share your feelings, and sharing with someone in the same situation yields the best results. Research also suggests that better mental health support in the workplace can save UK businesses up to £8 billion per year.
In addition to running our fortnightly meetings across the UK for members of the public we have also developed a Corporate Sponsorship program designed to help support organisations with their employee wellbeing initiatives alongside their community engagement and CSR programs.
Visit us in the ‘de-frazzle’ zone at the Workplace Wellbeing by Design to find out more about how we can help support your organisation.
