Sukh talks to Ryan Tahmassebi in this episode about wellbeing and mental health. It's a really open discussion and Ryan shares his own struggles with depression, the impact it had on his life and family, and what he had to do to learn how to live with it, and be in a much stronger position years later.

It's a really good discussion and Sukh and Ryan explore how to talk about wellbeing in organisations, and the role of managers to support team members when they may be experiencing hard times, and the positive impact on organisations when you have open conversations about wellbeing and mental health. They also talk about how schools can do more to positively influence emotional and mental health amongst students.

Ryan talked about this blog post from Neil Morrison - Your sickness policy is killing the world https://change-effect.com/2018/11/05/your-sickness-policy-is-killing-the-world/.
