A short while ago, my friend Jo started her own company called the mad and sad club. After her own struggles with mental ill health, Jo decided that she needed to tackle the stigma behind mental health in the workplace, and she's now started her own business advising companies on how to handle it and how to move forwards into better awareness and understanding of mental health. She was featured in the Telegraph yesterday and has recently set up and built her own website, mental health awareness course, and worksheets to help those who may be suffering with this.
I was honoured to be one of the first people to be featured on her website, talking about my own mental ill health and breakdown at work, which has led to problems with anxiety, but also to me starting my own business Howell Illustration. I've talked about all of this over on the blog, so if that's something that interests you, head on over by clicking here, and check out her good work while you're there.
