Oqea Presents "How To Build Your Resilience Shield" - Supporting the 2022 Hawaiian Ride For Youth

Written by Atle Edgar Mar 16, 2022

"How to Build Your Resilience Shield" was a physical and virtual luncheon where attendees heard from a range of mental health experts.

Connecting people with and sharing the knowledge of experts in mental health is a critical aspect of Oqea's mission, empowering everyone with the knowledge they require to manage their own unique mental wellbeing journey or support the journey of a loved one.

Presentations included;

Oqea's Co-founder and Chief Product Officer, Anton Pearce, who spoke on his lived experience as a senior mental health nurse and his personally experienced trauma of suicide within his own family.

The Resilience Shield unpacked the essence of resilience and how to strengthen your own resilience shield against the chronic and acute stressors of life. Topics included their lived experiences as SAS veterans, and applied research they conducted to identify the constituent elements of stress and resilience and how they developed a resilience model that was dynamic, multi-factorial and modifiable.

Oqea CEO and Managing Director of Oqea, Martyn Weir, spoke about the Ride for Youth itself, the Oqea ride team and the work that Oqea has been doing to help create a connected and collaborative mental health system where preventative care is the norm.

We also hosted a mental health round table, featuring Ben Pronk (The Resilience Shield), Julian Pace (Founder & CEO of Happiness Co), Dr Richard Magtengaard (Consultant Psychiatrist, Director of Resolute & Co-founder of Oqea) and Anton Pearce (Oqea Co-founder and Chief Product Officer).

It's not too late to support the Oqea team and Youth focus.
