There was a time when work was just about sitting at the office for eight hours and taking home a paycheck. Today work permeates our whole lives.

One topic, though, is still taboo: mental health. From anxiety to depression to eating and substance abuse disorders, when it comes to our careers, we often pretend these issues just don’t exist.

The Anxious Achiever offers another way. On a new podcast from HBR Presents, host Morra Aarons-Mele — entrepreneur, author of the book Hiding in the Bathroom, and lifelong anxious person — explores how anxiety and other mental health issues affect people at work, for better and for worse.

We’ll look at the connection between high performers — some of the world’s most successful people — and the hidden mental struggles they go through. We speak to CEOs and leaders who have been there and experts who can help you chart a successful career path while dealing with your own mental health issues.

You aren’t alone. Anxiety is normal. And it doesn’t have to keep you from reaching your goals.
