Good health and mental health contribute to quality of life, engagement and productivity at work, which in return promote economic growth, stability and employment.
It is important for employees to educate themselves on mental health issues in order to be sensitive to any needs of employees that may arise. It is important that the workplace is a sensitive and safe place for employees who may experience mental illness or psychosocial distress.
A positive workplace culture and having managers and employees who actively support people with mental health problems will always have in return a more productive workforce!
