Therapist Lorna Fulton will address re-entry anxiety and sensory overload; from feeling on edge in bigger crowds, going back into the office, getting on the tube, or feeling drained when meeting friends and family for long-awaited catch-ups. Lorna will also offer helpful ways to monitor emotional wellbeing, and tools to look after yourself before and after in-person social activity.
Lady Phyll said: “Black LGBTQ+ people have been so disproportionately impacted by Covid-19, the lockdowns and the isolation that beating the pandemic have required. It’s also important to remember that this time likely made worse pre-existing ill mental health in our community because of what it takes for us to navigate the world as Black people.
“I have always spoken very openly about mental health on stage, I have always found getting it out really helps me. I am delighted to be involved in this event with Lady Phyll and Lorna,” said Suzi Ruffell.
