For people experiencing a mental illness, a good work/life balance is critical. The relationship between stress and mental illness is complex, but certainly stress can exacerbate mental illness for some people. In fact, according to Statistics , employees who considered most of their days to be quite a bit or extremely stressful are over 3 times more likely to suffer a major depressive episode, compared with those who reported low levels of general stress . In many cases, employers are so afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing, that they say nothing. This can lead to decreased productivity, lower morale, and conflict in the work environment.
We help employers respond immediately and appropriately when employees experience mental health problems and effectively manage performance and productivity issues. It is founded on the belief that focusing on solutions around mental health issues in the workplace will benefit employers and employees alike. Therefore, Community Mental health team offer mental health education in various work places to bring into awareness of some common mental health issues that affect people in their work places.
