A small business mental health expert - Leanne Faulkner. Welcome to Fortitude at Work. I work at the intersection of small business ownership and mental health. I'm a small business owner with my own lived experience of the challenges that come with starting and growing a business. I know what it takes to build resilience to ride the  waves of small business. I underpin this practical understanding with continuous academic research in this field. I work well with small business owners who want to improve their mental resilience; I work with big business who want to better understand how to support their small business clients; and I work with government agencies who want to keep the wellbeing of small business owners on their agenda.
