In January 2008, Geoff McDonald experienced a massive panic attack on the eve of his daughter's 13th birthday. After a trip to his doctor, he was diagnosed with anxiety fuelled depression, an event that has led to years of campaigning and advocacy on the subjects of mental health, and employee wellbeing.

In this podcast, we speak to Geoff about his own experience of mental ill health (01:10), how we can address the stigma surrounding mental health in the workplace (07:30), and how businesses can get serious about supporting their employees' wellbeing (16:20).
