Jeremy Thomas talks about why balance is crucial, especially in business. Just as a balanced diet might help keep you physically healthy, a balanced mind is important for wellbeing. But when stress or trauma happen, how can you be in the best condition to stay strong?
Three videos to start the conversation
More and more people are realising that it’s important to talk about mental health in the workplace. But not everyone’s used to doing this: where do you start, and will the other person understand?
One important way to move things forward is to develop a culture where everyone realises that mental health is important but talking about it is nothing to be afraid of. These three short videos are great ones to watch, forward to colleagues, post on your intranet or share in a newsletter, as a gentle introduction to get the conversation started.
