Every year, we celebrate Mental Health Awareness Month and Self-Care Day, yet it takes tragedies before people can talk about mental health.
Unfortunately, the stigma surrounding mental health issues means that millions of people worldwide suffer in silence due to the fear of being shamed.
The pandemic might have highlighted the need to have meaningful discussions about mental health, but there is still more to be done.
With this in mind, leaders need to adopt a new leadership style where they embrace vulnerability and create safe spaces where team members can be open about their mental health.
Nonetheless, the first step towards a happy and healthy workplace is by focusing on self-care. Self-care is vital for building resilience towards life's stressors that can sometimes be overwhelming. When you take steps to care for your mind and body, you'll be better equipped to live your best life.
With us today is Rosie Bartlett, founder of Mindseye Training and a principal master instructor with over 13 years experience in the mental health space. We discuss how mental health affects productivity, the importance of self-care, and how to create happy and healthy workplaces.
