'Care to talk?' podcast with Lee Trueman and Marc Caulfield

Each episode hones in on a mental health topic, with Marc and Lee covering the strategies and mechanisms that can help managers build better resilience, togetherness and openness in caring teams. 

Facing these issues with warmth, personal experiences and positivity, ‘Care to talk?’ feels like a well-needed catch-up with trusted friends, where the world can be set to rights.

Influential mental health advocate and consultant Marc Caulfield, said: “As someone that spent a great deal of my early career suffering from undiagnosed anxiety and depression, I understand first-hand the crushing weight of poor mental health in the workplace. 

“It is absolutely essential that we, as business leaders, can talk about these issues openly and honestly. ‘Care to talk?’ offers a safe space to talk and learn about the impacts that practical mental health policies can have on the welfare of employees.”

Sales Director at Unique IQ and mental health champion, Lee Trueman, said: “I’ve had the privilege of working alongside caring businesses for many years, and I understand the uphill battle that business leaders face, especially in recruiting and retaining care workers. 

“Looking after the mental health and wellbeing of staff members has an undeniable positive impact on job satisfaction and happiness. We hope that hosting this podcast will go some way in breaking the stigma of mental health, and help care leaders pave the way for change.”
