While the importance of mental wellbeing amongst PR practitioners has rightly risen to the top of corporate agendas over recent years, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the need for accessible, practical support for the industry in the Middle East.

MEPRA’s COVID-19 Mental Health Impact Survey conducted in April 2020, revealed that more than a third of our industry’s professionals felt they were not well supported by companies with regards to their health and wellbeing. Almost half of respondents revealed that challenges regarding their mental health had often interfered with their ability to complete work-related tasks and a third asked for direct support in training for management and leadership to better equip them to handle employee issues.

The MEPRA Workplace Wellness Programme has been developed to help support organisations and individuals so they have the tools to prioritise mental wellbeing. The programme provides a holistic approach to supporting our industry professionals and it’s FREE for all MEPRA Members. Contact us at wellness@mepra.org or call us on +971 54 494 0555.
