Alison Butler - Keynote speaker
Have Alison speak at your next event
Alison is an experienced conference and workshop speaker. From conference keynotes to staff learning days, Alison can deliver an engaging session for your upcoming event.
Alison speaks about her personal experiences with mental health, both at work and at home. In 2017 she started experiencing physical health symptoms that she didn't understand and spent months visiting a variety of Doctors and medical professionals. Eventually she was diagnosed with depression and anxiety.
Using her own story Alison talks about mental health, wellbeing, burnout and stress in a way that everyone can relate to. Alison wants to break down barriers of what mental health "looks like" and share the message that we can all work together to change our own mindset about mental health and to support others.
Despite the challenges, Alison believes that her mental health diagnosis is one of the best things to ever happened to her because it has allowed her to become much more self-aware, to have more empathy for those around her and to share her experiences as much as possible in the hope of helping others.
