Episode 64: Overcoming the Stigma of Mental Ill Health at Work (Rebroadcast)

Asking for help at work when we’re struggling with mental ill health can feel risky. So, how do we gauge if it’s safe to speak up, and how do we actually do it? Geoff McDonald, mental health advocate and former Global VP of Human Resources for Unilever, shares his advice on this topic as well as his provocative thoughts on leaders’ responsibilities for building work cultures that foster employee wellbeing.

Originally aired as episode 39.
