As a prominent advocate for mental health awareness, Majella has extended an open invitation to anyone who wishes to attend. She will be giving an insightful talk on her own journey and views on mental health.

The thought-provoking theatre company Bread & Roses will be performing a short comical drama about how work can influence our mental health.
