Bite-sized guide for employees
The quality of our mental health affects how we think, feel and act in all aspects of our life, including our physical health and relationships among other things. That’s why it is essential for us to talk openly about it and do what we can to actively support our own wellbeing.
There are many things that can cause our mental health to decline, both at work and outside of it; from an unmanageable workload, to a lack of managerial support or
financial difficulties, to a breakdown of a relationship or a decline in our physical health. Some of us may already have a diagnosed mental health condition, some can be afraid to seek help or may not know where to start, and others may not even realise they are suffering with mental ill-health. Whatever your situation, your mental health is of immeasurable value, which is why understanding the quality of it is very important. So this guide provides some insightful mental health and wellbeing takeaways for you to consider and explore.
