Our wellbeing includes our mental health. For many of us, it can be difficult to open up about a mental health issues – particularly in the work place. If an employee was physically sick or injured, it would very likely be raised with the individual’s line manager – and likely there would be little in the way of stigma for doing so. The same cannot be said for Mental Health. Many people do struggle to talk about their mental health, and when its come to the workplace it can be quite tricky.
I read a great article with things to consider when talking to your Line Manager about your mental health – you can read it here.
Here is a short extract from the article
