More than half of us report our mental health as ‘not good’: 5 reasons you should care, and 5 ways to fix it

Our mental health and day-to-day wellbeing are affected by numerous things, whether individually or in combination. Things like illness, bereavement, social life or lack thereof, your job and the security of it, your family circumstances among many other things.

It really isn’t a surprise that how we feel at work can impact the rest of our lives outside of the office.
