Mental wellness is crucial within the workplace.
Workplace stress is real, especially in these unprecedented times of the Covid-19 pandemic. Maybe your employees have been working from home and suddenly find that they have to return to the workplace. Be aware that it will be a daunting prospect for some of them and that it can be worrying and cause anxiety.
Good mental health at work and good management go hand in hand. There is strong evidence that workplaces with high levels of mental wellbeing are more productive.
The Mental Health Awareness Week website says that: “Life will always have its challenges and no-one wants to go back to living in caves. But unless we step back and find alternative approaches to a life of repeated stressful events, we can’t expect the tide of poor mental health to turn.”
Companies have a responsibility to create a supportive environment and to make sure their workers know how to deal with stress. Mental health training helps raise awareness of the importance of good mental health and signposts ways to get mental health support.
