Join the Invictus Games Foundation Conversation
On Wednesday 11th May, at 14.00 BST, the Invictus Games Foundation will be holding a virtual ‘conversation’ on the theme of mental health and resilience, as well as understanding the wider impact of the Invictus Games on the recovery journey’s of international wounded, injured or sick Servicemen and women (WIS).
Bringing in the participating nations for their views on on-going preparations, training, and measures being taken to support the competitors during lockdown, the conference will also bring together researchers, and organising committee members from former Invictus Games to discuss best practice and impacts of the Games.
The final session will be looking at gaining international perspectives on how to best recognise and articulate the importance of resilience in enabling members of the WIS community to regain a sense of purpose.
The Invictus Games Foundation Conversation is being supported by three organisations that have enabled the charity to continue its mission to support international WIS at this time: Ascot Rehab, Fisher House Foundation and ISPS Handa. Representatives of these organisations will be attending the conversation, and sharing their perspectives and contributions to the recovery journey of international WIS.
Over 300 guests have already registered to attend the conference, but there are a few remaining spaces to join at: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/7415881701951/WN_o3b0M_LjQwevCbGrjsaH0g
With the Invictus Games The Hague 2020 being moved until next year, there are still ways in which the organising committee as well as the Invictus Games Foundation have been active in providing opportunities for the public to show their support for the competitors and their friends and family members, as well as building new virtual networks for the competitors themselves, and offering opportunities to participate in physical activity as part of their training.
