Since 2022, Mental Health at Work and Simply Business have been working together to offer mental health tips, advice and information to sole traders and small business owners. We hope you’ve found our hub and stories useful.

But now, we need your help.

This short survey from Simply Business seeks to find out exactly what mental wellbeing issues small business owners and sole traders are experiencing, and discover the best ways we can help support you.

And to say ‘thank you’, you can choose to be entered into a prize draw to win a £50 gift card.

Our last survey from June 2023 survey painted a worrying picture. Over half of those who participated said they had experienced poor mental health in the preceeding 12 months, and almost a half struggled with sleep. 1 in 3 small business owners reported working more than 46 hours a week, while three quarters admitted to taking fewer than 20 days of annual leave.

We want to find out out if anything has changed, and if we’re still providing relevant, helpful resources to support you and your business.

Make sure you check out Mental Health at Work and Simply Business’s online support hubs for up-to-date, relevant and useful tips to support your mental wellbeing in your workplace, no matter how small it might be. You can also use the Mental Health at Work search bar if you’re looking for advice on a particular topic.
