Building awareness for a brighter future

When the opportunity to write this piece came about, I jumped at the chance. Not only because I feel strongly about the importance of our mental health for our daily wellbeing, but because I’ve been delving deeper and deeper into this area personally over the last 10-12 years, trying to expand my knowledge and awareness about why I have behaved, reacted or felt the way I have to certain situations throughout my life. Exploring why I have felt the way I have has been an interesting ride – and it’s not been easy. Confronting yourself is always more difficult than confronting others and being someone who is an avid avoider of confrontation that is saying something!

Are business leaders immune to mental health challenges?

Like our physical health, we all have mental health, and occasionally, one or both may suffer. One in four people in Scotland are estimated to be affected by mental health problems. With the challenges faced over the past year, that figure is likely to be significantly higher, thus presenting an opportunity for business leaders to demonstrate authentic leadership as we prepare to go back to the workplace.
