Ollie Smith is joined by Lang Cat director of consulting Steve Nelson to discuss what more we can do to break down the taboo of poor mental health in the financial services

'I thought: I can't do this anymore': mental health in financial services

'Something bad happened, but I was alright, and then something else happened, and I was alright, and then something else happened, and then something else happened and something else happened and that was too much.'

This is the self-described moment where our podcast guest this week snapped and realised that there was something seriously wrong with their mental health. 

At the time, Steve Nelson, now consulting director at The Lang Cat, was working for a major brand in the life and pensions and investment space. 

In this episode, he chats with Ollie Smith about how mental health has risen up the agenda of public conversation, and why - in financial services - there may be specific problems that mean it is not as well addressed as it might be.
