E 126 Mental Health in the Workplace: Protect Yourself
The pandemic changed things for workplaces in so many ways, the way mental health is treated is just one of them. Often, in the workplace today, people talk more about how they are actually doing, sharing about their mental health, and possibly their mental illnesses. This isn’t always a good thing though. An article in the Wall Street Journal last month, discussing the downside of bringing your whole self to the workplace had us thinking, how much should we really share about ourselves in the workplace?
Mental health in the workplace carries a lot of emotion for many people, it can be a really scary topic to discuss because it seems incredibly taboo even in a time where there seems to be less stigma surrounding mental health. We tackle this topic this week because that is what we do, talk about the things no one wants to talk about. We talk about best practices as an employee and as a leader to maintain a positive mental health environment.
As we continue moving through mental health awareness month, we continue to bring awareness even on the toughest corners of the topic. We hope you enjoy! Don’t worry there is quite a bit of levity as I talk about my massive Linkedin presence with 31 connections and my purchase of the entire Wall Street Journal. Sarah also has BEST news to share with everyone!
