Mental Health in the Workplace

People who have mental heath concerns are often misunderstood and stigmatized, leading to an increase in performance concerns, conflict, and absenteeism in the workplace. While it is not your responsibility to diagnose mental illness, it can be both important and helpful for you to be aware of the signs and symptoms that may indicate whether someone is experiencing mental health concerns so that you can respond and support in helpful ways. With the right support, people with mental health concerns can thrive in the workplace.

Prior to working in the area of leadership consulting, Randy was a social worker and a mental health counsellor. Drawing on his experiences as both a mental health clinician and a leader, this presentation provides an overview of mental health, and offers guidance on how to participate in conversations with those who may require support when experiencing difficulties related to mental health.
