1 p.m. – 2 p.m. CDT - Turn Adversity into Advantage - Mental Health Innovation

Petra Velzeboer, Founder and CEO, PVL

Petra Velzeboer has a MSc in Psychodynamics of Human Development and is a Clinical Director of an EAP and runs her own thriving Mental Health Consultancy. Petra has worked with young offenders and supports mental health charities such as Young Minds. Petra has a wealth of knowledge and experience in helping others overcome mental health issues.

Petra was born into the infamous Children of God cult in Brazil and has siblings from all cultures and backgrounds. At 22 she managed to escape and move to the UK but by 25, with 2 children, she experienced chronic isolation, depression and sank into alcohol dependence with suicidal thoughts. Then she realized she had a choice and gave herself a year to turn her life around.

Petra knows that the world of work is changing and organizations who are ahead of the curve in mental health innovation, retain staff, avoid long term absences, create safer places to work and are ultimately more productive environments. Petra will inspire employees to not let their past define them and provides practical tips around resilience in order to establish a stable mental health.
