TRC's Mental Health Guide For Start-Ups

With Mental Health Awareness Week drawing to a close in the UK, it seemed like as good a time as any to launch our Mental Health Guide For Start-Ups.

The past year has shown us how important our collective mental wellbeing is, not just in our personal lives but at work too. We'd hazard an educated guess that the businesses that have successfully weathered the storm can partly attribute their resilience to having an open, supportive culture among their colleagues.

Despite the tech space seeming relatively unscathed by over a year of lockdowns, quarantine and constant change, our mental health may not have been so lucky. Now's the time to really dedicate some time (we know you're often short of that!) to taking a pro-active, preventative approach to your team's mental wellbeing.

Don't believe us? Here are some stats that may just change your mind...

  • 1 in 5 adults currently live with a mental illness such as anxiety or depression
  • This works out to 650million people worldwide
  • More than half of the tech workforce has experienced a mental health concern

We put this guide together because growing businesses, although usually closer as a team, can sometimes assume that formal mental health processes aren't meant for them. Whether it's being pinched for time, feeling like you're not big enough to justify the budget or just not realising how beneficial it could be for your time: it's never too late to start making mental health a priority. In actual fact, the agile nature of start-ups makes them the perfect hotbed for crafting a mental health first company culture.
