In this conversation, we deep dive into the workplace's most common mental health issues. We also asked our panel whether or not they have faced any mental health problems throughout their careers.
This was a special moment for our session; our panellists were not afraid to be vulnerable in front of the mic. Their stories are lessons we can identify with, followed by personal recommendations to tackle mental health challenges.
Remember, taking a step back can sometimes propel you forward three steps.
This podcast was recorded to commemorate International Mental Health Day and is our small tribute to a cause that is important to all of us.
