How Alicia Keys is expanding her brand mindfully

With burnout, anxiety, and depression among workers hitting record levels—three-quarters of full-time U.S. workers experienced at least one symptom of a mental health condition in the past year, according to the consultancy Mind Share Partners—it’s time for a serious conversation about how the workplace affects our mental health. Fast Company is getting that conversation started with a series of stories in our Summer issue. Cover subject Alicia Keys speaks candidly about how she is finally protecting her mental wellbeing while taking on new challenges, including launching her Keys Soulcare skincare brand and a series of capsule collections with Athleta. We also convened a roundtable of business leaders and mental health advocates to discuss how to create workplaces that prioritize employees’ whole health. And we have an excerpt of Bonobos founding CEO Andy Dunn’s new memoir, Burn Rate, in which he describes how having untreated bipolar disorder nearly derailed his personal and professional life. Find these stories and more on our Mental Health at Work hub.
