Quilter offers free mental health talks to financial advisers

Quilter has announced it will offer free mental health talks for financial advisers to mark Mental Health Awareness Week.

The wealth manager has partnered with wellness programme, Spill, to offer a series of talks that will take place between Monday 10 May and Thursday 13 May.

Quilter described the past year as “extremely challenging for everyone” and highlighted that financial advisers have had to cope with increased demands and workloads, while navigating new ways to assist clients in need of major financial support.

As part of its commitment to supporting advisers’ emotional wellbeing, Quilter said the free talks are designed to offer support and guidance and address “a range of issues”. These include exploring the social and psychological reasons of why people may find it harder to switch off nowadays, to what can be done to change workplace culture for the better.

Quilter CEO, Paul Feeney, commented: “We’re all feeling a bit knocked about after the past year, but we’ve all found reserves of strength and resilience we didn’t know we had. But this period will pass, indeed is passing and as we come out of it it’s vital to reflect on what has changed, what we’ve learnt, including about ourselves, and how we can use that to create better lives.

“Right now many people are feeling anxious about returning to normality, including going back to life in an office, even if not for five days a week. Mental Health Awareness Week provides the ideal opportunity to take some time to take care of our mental health and emotional wellbeing, so I’m really pleased to be able to offer these talks to help advisers through this difficult period.”

Spill CEO, Calvin Benton, added: “The last year has been emotionally tough on everyone, and so for Mental Health Awareness Week we're proud to be offering a series of talks to advisers that draw upon the expertise of Spill's therapists to provide helpful tips for common issues, whether that's making more time to switch off and rest or trying to better support those around you.”
