Living with anxiety—and growing with it

feat. Hannah Meredith, Health & Wellbeing Partner at MVF

In this episode...

For Hannah, anxiety is more than just mental. Restlessness, shortness of breath, and a racing heartbeat all flare up when she’s busy, a physical reminder that there are boundaries to be kept.

Despite suffering with anxiety since childhood, Hannah was only diagnosed in her late twenties. It was an enlightening moment—and as MVF’s Health & Wellbeing Partner, her experiences have helped her foster a culture of empathy and openness.

You’ll hear more about the techniques Hannah uses to manage her anxiety, how she’s supporting the expanding team at MVF, and why more employees taking mental health days can actually be a good thing.
