COVID-19 has had a profound impact on our lives, enforcing major changes, which for many have caused much stress and anxiety. In this episode, Business Gateway Highland Manager Danny Gallagher talks to Louise Stuart of Healthy Working Lives and Catriona Davies from Resolution Mediation Scotland.

They discuss what you can do as an employer to maintain good mental health, and the steps you can take to look after your workforce during what is a strange situation for everyone.

We also explore how you might start conversations about mental health, the power of OK, useful apps, courses and techniques which can form a toolkit in and out of work.
