A new approach to employee mental health: Why it must become a business priority

We recently had a chat with George Taktak, Founder and CEO of How Mental, the mental movement on a mission to support everyone in prioritising their mind. With a community of over 660 000 people on Instagram, the How Mental team knows a thing or two about how to create a culture of trust, inclusivity and care.

In this conversation, we discuss all things mental health. We look at what burnout actually is and how it is impacting employees in today’s working environment. We explore how George takes care of the mental wellbeing of the team, their company culture and ideas to encourage business leaders to open up about their mental health. Finally, we look at the challenges preventing people from accessing mental health support and potential solutions to overcome this.
