The mental health and wellbeing industry talks a lot about progress. Make no mistake, we are making progress. But by focusing too much on this abstract idea, we risk overlooking a devastating problem. Mental ill-health costs the global economy around one trillion US dollars. Every year. This highlights the enormity and urgency of the issue but never forget: behind every stat is a human story. A friend facing addiction. A team spiralling into burnout. A workmate contemplating suicide.
