Mental health and the workplace

Due to the sheer amount of time spent by individuals in their place of work as well as commuting to it,  the workplace environment has a huge effect on the state of many people’s mental health.

This can have a measurable impact on workplace productivity and likewise workplace issues can have a very real effect on mental health outside the work setting.

Bullying,  stress, discrimination, safety and indeed employment uncertainty can all profoundly affect the state of our mental health.  The below article from the financial times looks at the issue.

I have first hand experience working at a number of  blue chip companies in different roles and have had exposure to these issue with colleagues  at all levels.

I provide a specific employee assistance counselling option for those who may be affected by these issues.
