Ahead of World Mental Health Day (October 10th, 2020), the world’s largest podcast company, Acast, has announced an industry-focused mental health initiative for its agency partners.

The quarterly event series looks to remove stigma and encourage engagement around mental health by subverting traditional media-land events into an opportunity for real and productive mental health discussions.

The first event kicks off this Friday (October 9th, 2020) with a mental health themed quiz hosted by mental health advocate and creator of the Better Than Yesterday podcast, Osher Günsberg.

Henrik Isaksson, Regional Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand at Acast, said: “It’s been a tough year for many in agency land, but there is still reason to relax and celebrate.

Osher Günsberg, creator and host of the Better Than Yesterday podcast, said: “We all love a quiz – so why not use it as a way to discuss and reflect on our own mental health?

The first of Acast’s mental health events will be held on Friday 9th October from 12PM – 12:45PM.
