Welcome to The People Project, the podcast about my journey to understand what it takes to create great company culture.


My name is Jonathan Richards, and in this episode, I explore the topic of mental health in the workplace.

I speak to Mike Ellen, the training and resilience manager at Mind in West Essex, to find out what mental health is and why it's an important topic for every business.

My goal was to learn from Mike what it takes to create a supportive environment that challenges the stigma of mental health. Mike covers the impact of poor mental health on businesses and indeed the UK economy. He also shares some really useful tools that every business would benefit from using.
