10th October is World Mental Health Day
Behavioural-emotional problems can affect anyone irrespective of their age or profession. In a country like India, where 1 in every 5 people suffer from depression and more than 50% of employees suffer from some form of condition affecting the mental health, it is imperative we break the silence and talk.
Everything starts with awareness. As employers, perhaps on this special day, we can start by raising awareness among our employees about why mental health is so important. A positive psychology approach and positive re-enforcements are something that should be made a regular feature of our everyday lives.
This will help our employees for sure but will benefit the company’s bottom-line as well. It is practically a win-win for you, your employees and the society at large.
Please show your support this World Mental Health Day by wearing something green today as part of the World Mental Health Day initiative.
MeeHappy Wellness has embarked on this mission to make our society, starting with the organizations and individual employees, healthier, happier and more productive.
