Dental team members are invited to register now with Psynergy Mental Health to attend a free webinar this September.

Marking World Suicide Prevention Day, the webinar will raise awareness of available help for those who find themselves in crisis.

It will be hosted by Psynergy CEO, Dr Ritesh Aggarwal (Rick), and COO, Dr Danyal Akarca (Dan). Rick is a practising dentist so has incredible insight into the day-to-day challenges of working in dentistry. Dan is a medical doctor by training, and works at the University of Cambridge. He provides insights into current research on topics relating to mental health.

Simply register now at to gain access to the event on Sunday 10 September 2023.

Creating hope through action

Psynergy Mental Health’s aim is to change how organisational mental health is understood and can be improved.

Through their digital platform, leaders are empowered to create mentally healthy organisations that enable all to reach their potential through a personalised approach. Crucially, solutions are made specific to dental practices, are designed to be simple to implement, and are tailored over time to ensure maximum benefit.

Dr Aggarwal said: ‘World Suicide Prevention Day offers us an opportunity to raise awareness of suicide and suicide prevention. During the webinar I will be linking in with the theme of creating hope through action.

‘I will do this by reflecting on what we can do in dentistry to ensure that we are all appropriately supported and can form an open, kind culture, where people do not feel isolated and fall through the net.

‘Encouraging understanding and sharing experiences creates a society where people have the confidence to take action, building hope for the future.’

Ask for help

This is not an isolated problem. One in four people in the UK will have a mental health problem at some point in their life. While mental health problems are very common, most are mild, tend to be short-term and can be successfully treated. Yet only one in eight people with a mental health condition are receiving appropriate treatment.

If you are struggling, please do ask for help from your GP, family and friends. If someone you know seems to be struggling, although it can feel very challenging, please offer them whatever support you can and assist them in seeking professional help.

In the meantime, why not take a first step with Rick and Dan at Psynergy Mental Health? You can be sure of a warm welcome, helpful information and no judgement at the webinar on 10 September.
