Mental Health Matters: Part 2 - Focus on the Workplace

In the workplace, attitudes toward mental health and mental illness make a big difference for all employees, especially for those experiencing mental health issues. There is a stigma surrounding mental health.  Most often, this leads to inaccurate and hurtful stereotypes of people as dangerous and incompetent.  The shame and isolation associated with these inaccurate assumptions prevents people from seeking the help necessary to live healthy and full lives.   In this module, we further our learning of mental health by exploring the various aspects of the ‘real threats’ of mental illness, and the effects it has on the lives of those affected.
