Why mental health needs to be discussed in the Boardroom

The stigma around mental health is slowly shrinking as discussions about depression, anxiety and other silent illnesses become more commonplace.

In recent years, celebrities and business leaders have come forward to share personal stories of their struggle with mental health problems. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry, have also advocated mental health awareness through the Heads Together campaign. And slowly but surely, the taboo around this complex and sensitive subject is also shifting in the workplace, according to Liam Butler, Vice President of Corporate Sales at SumTotal, EMEA.
