Mental health and wellbeing in business

Mental health and wellbeing in business

Tuesday, 19 January 2021

We’re very much aware of the importance of good mental health, especially now during the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of their Impromptu Business Chat special interview episodes, James Lay and Mark Curtis recently spoke to Louise Newby, from Three Eggs, on this interesting topic, particularly for business leaders. It's important to look after your teams, but who is looking after you?

Louise is an experienced educator in the world of mental health, with a Masters from Cambridge. She has seen, first hand, the detrimental effects that poor mental health and lack of training and support can have on business leaders and their teams. In this valuable and important discussion, the panel look in depth at what leaders can be doing to build their resilience during these turbulent times. Off the back of this chat, James Lay has also written a blog - We all have mental health - where he goes into further detail about his own coping mechanisms. He provides further resources that many other leaders just like him, may find helpful whilst navigating the ongoing pandemic and its challenges, both personal and professional.

The podcast chat with Louise is available on Apple Podcasts, You Tube, Spotify, or wherever else you find your podcasts.
