MENTAL HEALTH AND WHY IT NEEDS TO BE DISCUSSED IN THE CORPORATE SPACE

Mental health is a state of well-being in which an individual can cope with everyday stressors, work productively, reach his or her full potential, and contribute to their community.

No one is immune to mental health problems. People at all levels of social, occupational, or economic status can experience mental breakdown. Mental health is just as essential as physical health. Normalizing the conversation about it empowers people to talk and get the help they need.

It is associated with decreased productivity, mood irritability leading to increased interpersonal conflict, and short-term and long-term disability. Therefore, creating a safe and healthy work environment is essential. Talking about mental health isn’t easy, but it definitely matters.

Here are 3 reasons why mental health needs to be discussed at the work place:

1. To Encourage Care And Support – Talking about mental health, in general, encourages people to seek treatment, especially once they realize we’re not alone. The more we talk about it, the more likely we’ll feel comfortable seeking care and support.

2. To Maintain Good Mental Health – Discussing mental health overall can help encourage us to maintain our mental well-being on a regular basis. Discussions that include tips or information on how to care for our mental health and well-being can benefit everyone, whether we struggle with occasional mental health issues or a severe mental health disorder.

3. To Break the Stigma of Mental Health Disorder – There is still stigma surrounding mental health. By revealing issues, people fear becoming isolated, viewed as abnormal, and considered unfit for the job.

Employers have an essential role to play in supporting employees with education about mental health and creating an open dialogue. Providing resources that promote awareness can help create an accessible and positive workplace, one that fosters engagement and attracts talent.
