Hi everyone. I need some help. Off the back of the success of the book some companies have started to ask me to help them with their workplace culture and how they talk about mental health with their staff.
This is something I take very seriously and am passionate about helping with.
So I wanted to ask, how is mental health talked about in your workplace? And what ONE thing do you think could improve the culture around this stuff?
Just a thought.

Hey Sam, great piece of work! my organisation have 'mental health first aiders'. The idea is that much like a normal first aider, these people are trained in how to handle mental health discussions and are aware of the resources available to them. If anyone needs to speak to someone they just need to approach a mental health first aider. Since introduced it's certainly raised a lot of awareness. Good luck with the project!
Great to hear. Having trained mental health first-aiders throughout the business - they’re more approachable and able to empathise, having some knowledge of the work environment.
