No one likes talking about mental health. It’s stigmatized, it’s scary, and it’s anything but comfortable! It’s also very much misunderstood. And, whether you like it or not, its impact on our work and life is here to stay.
It’s time to talk about it, and to talk about it more effectively. It’s also time to recognize the signs, learn the proper tools, and create safe spaces to make it okay to not be okay.
As we navigate life post Covid, addressing mental health in the workplace is more important that ever. Studies show 80% of workers experience some type of mental health challenge – from stress to anxiety to a more serious diagnosis. And the cost to employers is an estimated thirty billion dollars annually.
Brave conversations surrounding mental health are no longer a nice to have, they are a need to have. The more we talk about it, the more we can create safe, supportive workplaces for everyone to thrive.
- Learn about ‘brave conversations’ – and how to engage in them more effectively.
- Explore how certain mental health diagnoses present themselves, and the behaviours to look out for amongst colleagues, as well as yourself.
- Understand the power of active listening and how to elevate your EQ.
- Gain strategies to create workspaces where it really is ‘okay to not be okay.’
