Removing the Stigma of Mental Health at Work Through Software
February 19, 2019
Today’s guest is Dr Nick Taylor. Nick has spent ten years in the NHS as a Clinical Psychologist dealing day-to-day with mental health in a variety of environments before leaving to co-found Unmind where he is the CEO.
Unmind is a B2B mental health platform that provides clinically-backed tools and training to bolster the wellbeing of employees. Nick tells me that the entire business is focused on providing positive, proactive solution to corporates.
Unmind is a fascinating company and a business for our times. Listen in to learn why Nick switched from working in the NHS to co-founding a software company focused on the mental health of corporate staff. How Unmind helps people to remain mental healthy at work. How to overcome the stigma of workplace mental health issues. The impact of technology and environmental change on stress in the workplace.
Nick gets under the skin of the importance of dealing with mental health in the workplace and what drives him and his team to educate us all on the importance of taking our mental health more seriously.
Nick and I also discuss the extra challenges that technology start-ups face in keeping founders and staff mentally healthy and we also discuss diversity in the workplace and how Unmind maintain their culture and values as the go through rapid growth.
I hope you get as much as I did out of the conversation.
