In October Geneva Business School will host its first TEDx event at our to explore the following theme:
Is our growing society equipped to care for the mental health of its individuals?
It is apparent that today more than ever before that questions of mental health are of greater importance and need to be discussed with some urgency. The lack of mental health awareness in our present-day society must be addressed, discussed, and reversed. The taboos associated with mental health must be broken at last and conversations on this topic must be normalized.
The first TEDx event ever hosted by Geneva Business School will feature a range of experts with opinions and ideas looking at both the medical and societal implications of the theme. The speakers will challenge us to see the options available to answer this question with examples and expertise from the areas of psychiatry, western and alternative medicine, and International law and business.
The event will be held on October 8th at 7:00 pm sharp in our Auditorium and followed by a light cocktail dinner on our Geneva Campus. The speakers will be requested to convey their insights on the matter as well as prepare a short visual presentation to accompany their thoughts, statements, assessments, opinions, and conclusions. Social distancing and COVID-19 protocols will be observed in the Auditorium and throughout the campus.
This event will be recorded and posted on our YouTube channel and the TEDx website after the event.
