Take some quality time away from modern-day distractions to focus on your physical and mental wellbeing on the Minds in the Wild challenge to the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. The challenge will test you physically as you trek across valleys, and over mountain passes with spectacular views. The retreat is hosted by Minds@Work, a community of working people who have come together to eradicate the stigma of mental illness and create a healthier working world.

On this challenge you will start your journey of discovery in Marrakech, where you will meet your trekking team. For the next three days, you will head on a trek through the Mid-Atlas Mountain range, camping at night under the stars. 

You will be joined by Geoff McDonald, global wellbeing advocate and co-founder of Minds@Work. He will walk you through informal evening workshops around the camp fire. The retreat will support you to create mentally and emotionally healthy and human workplaces where individuals can flourish and organisations prosper.
