#BLF2019# STRESS AND THE CITY

STRESS AND THE CITY
Enoch LiLise Floris

Monday, March 25, 6:00 PM
60 RMB | BW 25-1 | The Bookworm – TICKETS

Wellbeing seems to be the latest fad, but the mental health piece is still little talked about – and even if so, what really is burnout or depression? Every year, companies lose billions of dollars to mental health issues, but this is not just a problem for organizations to fix, especially when it can hit anyone, anywhere. Having grown up in Hong Kong and Australia and educated in France, Enoch Li, author of Stress in the City: Playing your way out of Depression, had achieved everything she had ever laboured toward by her 28th birthday – financial earnings, friends, a proud mother, and reputation. So why did she feel as though something was missing? One could hardly guess that a strong, successful young woman who travelled the world and had rocketed up the corporate ladder, would one day crumble to pieces, so hopeless and devastated that she believed life was no longer worth living. In Stress in the City, Enoch Li will share her experiences at the top of the corporate game, reflect on the warning signs she refused to see, and document her journey back from the edge through the rediscovery of her inner child. Enoch will also discuss how companies can help their executives be mentally and emotionally well through her research into the psychology of playfulness, workplace burnout, and company culture, and her work through Bearapy, a wellness consultancy based in Beijing. In conversation with Lise Floris.
