Mental Health at Work
Your mental health is affected by every part of your life. And since work is part of your life, it affects your mental health. Whether you are experiencing something at work that is getting you down or something outside of work is making doing your job difficult, help is at hand. The best course of action is the one that puts you in a position to improve your mental health. Depending on your situation, this could mean many different things. Accessing appropriate workplace policies and safeguarding resources, finding help and support and sharing stories are all valuable ways of positively affecting your mental health at work.
Your experience matters. Your experience is yours but you are not alone. Recognising that others have had similar experiences and can offer support and advice is a great first step to improving your situation. Far too often people suffer in silence at work, whether out of fear or a desire to avoid feeling vulnerable. Finding and getting help is an act of strength, not weakness, and taking steps to improve your mental health at work is extremely important.
