Featuring special guests, the live edition, exclusive to Health + Care, will discuss how best to support the mental health of a care team, with promised tangible “takeaways” that care managers and team leaders can put into action right away.

Care to talk?’ is the podcast to help leaders in the care sector look after their own mental health and the people they manage. Tackling difficult issues with warmth, personal experiences and positivity, ‘Care to talk?’ feels like a well-needed catch-up with trusted friends, where the world can be set to rights.
