Rankin shows his support for mental health
If you’re looking for present ideas this Christmas, award-winning entrepreneur and business leader, Suki Thompson and photographer and cultural provocateur, Rankin have come together to create a new publication in support of mental health and wellbeing in the workplace – and the ultimate good gift.
Inspired by the number of celebrities and sports stars coming forward to talk about mental health, Thompson noticed that very few business people were doing the same and decided to highlight the relationship between positive mental health and business success. Let’s Reset is the result.
Joining forces with internationally recognised photographer Rankin, who has shot David Bowie, Kate Moss and even The Queen, they’ve brought together 80 contributors to offer personal revelations and tips for wellbeing and resilience. These include: Dame Carolyn McCall, CEO ITV; Sarah Harbon, GM Benefit Cosmetics; Steve Parish, Chairman, Crystal Palace FC; Lady Nicola Mendelsohn CBE, VP EMEA Facebook; former England Rugby star and TV commentator, Ben Kay; author and comedian Russ Kane; actress, activist, model, Rose McGowan and Thompson herself will share her own transformation story.

Alongside their anecdotes and messages, specially commissioned portraits of all contributors have been taken by Rankin. They aim to show the ‘real selves’ behind the people and explore the modern preoccupation with issues such as FOMO in both their professional and public lives.
Thompson said: “My wonderful and brilliant friend Rankin, who has an ability to see into the soul of every human being, has worked with me on this project. Our collaboration of breath-taking photography and real-life stories brings to life why there is a need for companies to reset their attitudes to mental health, wellbeing and resilience and the success this can bring not only at home, but in work as well.”
Rankin added: “Let’s Reset is meant to inspire us to think differently about the way we work, and how to be brave enough to bring our whole selves to every conversation. There are top tips on how to build your own resilience and wellbeing, and, an opportunity to glimpse behind the scenes at what creates a successful business leader. If we all take the time to stop and listen, the workplace can be better, happier, and more effective.”
Let’s Reset is published by Rankin Publishing Ltd. and priced at £40, with some of the proceeds going to the mental health charity, Mind.
