Remember the famous scene with Tom Cruise hanging onto the cliff's side by only his fingertips? The bravest members of the team Infomentum were up to this challenge. No, we didn't fly to Norway; instead, we went to the City Bouldering as a part of our Wellness Program!

Because I know I am more than just my anxiety,
and one day I hope to be free of it entirely.

Keeping the ball rolling on I>M Wellness over the festive season...
The run up to Christmas is arguably the best time to come together to celebrate our shared experiences with Wellness this year.
On October 10th, we celebrate World Mental Health Day. At Infomentum we've recently made a pledge to change how we think and act about mental health, and we've decided to dive right in and really get involved. Let's begin with some background about mental health at work. We'll discuss a topic that a lot of people might not know much about, and focus on our initiatives to get us all talking about, understanding, and looking at mental health in a different way.
