Life is a Four-Letter Word

Talking about depression, anxiety and stress is often taboo for professionals with many considering it career ending – here’s why your mental health matters, why you should talk about it and what you can do to improve it.


Mental ill health impacts one in four people in the UK every year. Suicide is the single biggest killer of men in the UK under 45. Three in every four people who take their own life are men. We must break the stigma around mental health and encourage people to share what they feel or else we might lose them forever!


Andy Salkeld struggled with depression, anxiety, stress and ultimately suicide whilst working as a high-flying and often highly-strung accountant. In ‘Life is a Four-Letter Word’, he gives a brutally honest critique of the high-pressured life of professionals and the toll it can place on mental health and well-being. The book is full of great advice and warnings of common pitfalls, equipping readers with the confidence, tools and understanding to save themselves and their colleagues when they are struggling to balance their life.
