As we all know, small & medium businesses make up 99.9% of all private sector businesses in the UK, but they are under threat, now more than ever.

Interviews with The Experts #20 Jayne Hardy
Founder of The Blurt Foundation
Holly chats to Jayne Hardy, founder of The Blurt Foundation – a social enterprise dedicated to helping those affected by depression. They look at how we can each put a framework in place to look after our own mental health, now and for the future.
Jayne reiterates the importance of leaning into things that bring you comfort and joy and to take self care back to the basics – drink plenty of water, get outside, take each day as it comes and give yourself breathing space.

With thanks to our partners for helping us to bring SME: SOS to life…
