Our story

We’re on a mission to make employees feel safe to talk about mental health in the workplace. Here’s why.

Paul McGregor
Founder – Everymind

Everymind at Work was founded through a desire to tackle mental health stigma and deliver proactive support to your employees through our interactive webinars, wellbeing app and training workshops.

We’re a team of passionate individuals working together and supporting 100’s of businesses each year, but it all started with a personal experience from our Founder…

Founder story

My name is Paul and I want to be honest with you. My life was pretty ‘care free’ up until I was 18. I grew up in a loving household, I was pretty academic at school and I played football nearly every minute I had spare. My life was following a pretty ‘normal’ path, but then my life was turned upside down.

At 18, my Dad who showed no signs of depression or previous struggles with mental health, my Dad who had ‘everything’ on paper attempted suicide. Just 2 days in to my new job.

His attempt came as a shock to us all, but he miraculously survived the accident. And after a few weeks in hospital physically recovering, he was home. But even though at the time we thought we’d escaped a nightmare, things got worse. And on the 4th March 2009, just 6 months after his first sign of depression my dad took his own life.

I continue to share my experiences and the experiences of others, standing up to the stigma that surrounds mental health and strive towards early intervention and better support for those who need it.

I started Everymind at Work because after personally speaking at large corporations such as Lloyds TSB, and also smaller businesses such as Claremont Consulting, it became clear that there wasn’t a proactive solution to supporting businesses of all sizes.

There also still continued to be a one size fits all approach to supporting employees mental health, there wasn’t a tailored approach. Everymind at Work is that solution I wish my Dad had when he was going through his struggles at work.

What started as an idea on a notepad, driven by personal loss by our Founder, has now become a mental wellbeing partner for 100’s of organisations. Tackling mental health stigma, one partner at a time, will you be next?
