Mentally Healthy Humans
We need to create psychologically safe workplaces where people and the bottom line thrive
Tragically, there’s an enormous lack of understanding about mental health conditions in our society.
And we tend to avoid things we don’t understand and become frightened of what we can’t see.
Because of our avoidance and fear, people are dying. People are experiencing such isolation, shame and desperation, they are making the irreversible decision to end their own lives.
Thankfully, many do not make this choice. Instead, they suffer in silence. They put on false smiles and say everything is OK. They alter aspects of their lifestyles – like avoiding social situations – to be able to cope with the overwhelming feelings of depression and anxiety.
It's time to end the suffering and save lives.
