One of the biggest challenges with mental health is removing the stigma that surrounds it. People don’t hesitate to seek help for a physical pain or problem, yet so many of us ignore emotional and mental health issues; or we feel too embarrassed, confused or scared to talk about them.
To improve mental health awareness organisations must create a ‘culture of care’ whereby people feel more comfortable to talk about their state of mind, but should also raise awareness of mental health and provide training for employees to help them manage their own health.
Research shows that employees who are healthier are also happier; and happier people tend to work better with others, are more creative, innovative, productive and have a higher level of commitment to an organisation. Put simply, good mental health is a win-win for every employee and their organisation.
Raising awareness of mental health and learning how to identify and help those effected doesn’t have to be difficult. With the right understanding of what is needed, access to the right tools and training, we can help.
