Wellness and Self Care

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

How are you doing? 

Our jobs have become increasingly more stressful in the past few years and sometimes self-care and wellness practices fall to the wayside. Practicing self-care has been clinically proven to reduce or eliminate anxiety and depression, reduce stress, improve concentration, minimize frustration and anger, increase happiness, improve energy and more. 

This Mental Health Awareness Month, we've curated FICP resources to help you take care of yourself and, in turn, be a better leader and event professional.
