Webinar: Stress and Trauma at Work: Let’s Have a Conversation

The impact that stress, trauma and violence can take on our mental health obviously applies to journalists, but also to many other freelancers juggling precarious employment.

Stress, trauma and violence take a toll on our mental and physical health.

Join us for a conversation with working journalists to discuss ways to deal with these issues.
