Mental health issues like stress, anxiety and depression are common

We believe being open about mental wellbeing in the workplace is crucial. Everyone has an individual mental wellbeing story and we want our teams to feel that they can share theirs. Here are some of our employees sharing theirs – together we can break the silence.

Encouraging your employees to talk about their mental health might feel tricky at first, but creating an open and honest atmosphere will help your employees to feel comfortable to #OpenUp.

“A huge part of my recovery is owed to my manager and my colleagues. At first I wasn’t sure if I should be open with them but in hindsight I shouldn’t have worried. The support was incredible.”

Joshua’s story

How are we encouraging our teams to #OpenUp?
