Tackling mental health in the advertising industry

feat. Emma Flaxman, Engagement & Wellbeing Partner at PHD

In this episode...

Emma had no understanding of mental illness. So when her sister went through a mental health crisis, trying to make the right decisions brought a storm of guilt and anxiety. It would be the most challenging 24 hours of her life.

Working in the high-pressure advertising industry, Emma has made it her mission to show companies how to safeguard employee wellbeing and communicate meaningful mental health strategies—whether their employees are dedicated meditators, or have never really thought about their wellbeing.

You’ll hear how Emma is changing the advertising industry through wellbeing education, and why you don’t need to solve employees’ problems—you just need to connect them with someone who can.
