Launch of Entrepreneur Mental Health Association Offers Support to Business Owners

Launch of Entrepreneur Mental Health Association Offers Support to Business Owners

A Preston-based businesswoman has launched a support group for business owners suffering mental health issues caused by the stresses of lockdown.

Kelly Bolton, founder of Aggressive Growth Marketing, has set-up the Entrepreneur Mental Health Association (http://entrepreneurmentalhealthassociation.com/) to challenge the current mental health crisis in entrepreneurship.

72% of entrepreneurs suffer from mental illness, according to a study by the National Institute of Mental Health, with one third of entrepreneurs struggling with two or more conditions. Studies also found that start-up founders are twice as likely to suffer from depression.

Kelly said: “The stress of paying bills, looking after staff, being isolated and facing pressure to keep businesses going in these testing times is something that weighs heavily on all business owners.

“I know first-hand that there isn’t much help out there for our specific mental health needs. As driven go-getters, we can be big believers in “no pain, no gain”, but this is to the detriment of our own health and can eventually have a huge impact on our business and our lives.

“There is a clear mental health crisis in entrepreneurship and I am passionate about directly mitigating the damage caused by overworking, stress and the mental health challenges that entrepreneurs face.

“The objective of the Entrepreneur Mental Health Association is to support business owners in managing workload, productivity, stress, depression, anxiety, burnout, panic attacks, PTSD, regular general illnesses, stressful personal circumstances and more.

“We also work to help entrepreneurs with their personal and professional development and growth, as well as supporting their business’s development and growth, to help them live a happier, less stressful and more fulfilling life.

Aggressive Growth Marketing uses specialized growth-marketing methods to help businesses stand out from the crowd and stay a cut above the competition. An award-winning entrepreneur, Kelly has built AGM from the ground up and taken it from a part-time freelancing job to a thriving international company.
