Problem is we don’t want to fess up to

seeming weak, 


a liability,




So we tough it out at work until something snaps. 

But what if the culture was more tolerant of the human condition? 

One way of normalising ordinary pressures is to have senior management share their struggles with mental ill health. 

Getting buy-in from the top.

Behind the mask, some will have experienced intolerable stress. 

This helps to de-stigmatise mental illness, the feet of clay, the Achilles heel. 

Stuff can happen to anyone.

Everyone has their own unique personalised kryptonite with its own unique personalised name tag. 

Me. You. All of us.
