Why Workplace Mental Health?
Whether we’re currently experiencing symptoms related to any kind of mental health challenge, caring for family or friends, or just feeling burned out, the workplace can be a source of support…or increase our stress.
While companies previously focused on improving employee wellbeing, COVID-19 has shown us the great need and critical importance of prioritizing employee mental health.
People are struggling and many are afraid to discuss mental health challenges at work.
In addition to the struggles of each and every employee, mental health also impacts the workplace.
The good news is many employees who experience mental health challenges and receive appropriate treatment will have full, productive careers.
