Tips for success

Mental Health UK’s chapter in the Yes Business Can entrepreneur guide shares why it pays to take wellbeing seriously in your business. And it also provides practical guidance on how to identify signs and what you can do to support you and your team.

And if women started and scaled new businesses at the same rate as UK men, then up to £250bn of new value could be added to the UK economy2.
