Christina, one of Aviva’s mental health advocates and member of the AvivAbility steering committee.

Meet Christina, one of Aviva’s mental health advocates and member of the AvivAbility steering committee. World Mental Health Day was marked on Sunday 10th October, with the theme this year being 'Mental health in an unequal world'.

Christina who is a senior underwriter at Aviva, was inspired to share her experiences of living with an eating disorder to help reduce the stigma around mental illness in the workplace. Along with Aviva clinician, Paul, Christina produces a regular blog hosted on the Aviva Wellbeing site about eating disorders, with suggestions of how to support those in who may also be struggling.

“You don’t realise how much involves food when you work in an office: team lunches, drinks after work, cakes on people’s birthdays, meeting external clients and even team Christmas meals. These are all things that are really challenging for people with eating disorders.”

Aviva are so proud to have employees who care, give back, and build a better future for all of us.
