It is great to see our own CEO Claire Russell share her own story and experience with #mentalhealth in the prominent #insurance industry magazine, Insurance Age.
As a successful career woman, Claire thought that she was invincible;
"In my 20s I recall discussing mental health with friends, saying: I’m not the type of person to have mental health problems. I believed that then – I felt invincible, I was sure I could do anything I wanted. It never occurred to me that I might have a chink in my armour."
In the article, Claire talks openly about her own battle with #depression and #anxiety and the lack of support she received at work when she had a breakdown (compared to the support she received for a physical health problem in her early years in the insurance industry).
