The Vitality Spectrum: Moving the Needle on Mental Wellness
This keynote presentation is designed to guide your team, from wherever they may be on the spectrum (from depression, to stress, anxiety, or cruise control), towards a life of vitality both at work and at home. Margo will share “boots on the ground” tools and techniques that brought her from the abyss of addiction and suicidal depression to being a celebrated athlete in the extreme sport of ice climbing.
