Would you tell your boss you had depression? In The Bottom Line this week, Evan Davis hears from three successful business people who talk openly about what it’s like to experience severe mental illness whilst running their companies. They’ll explain the risks and rewards of going public about mental ill health problems: the reaction from investors and the impact on staff. And we’ll hear why being open about mental illness can lead to a happier, healthier workplace.
