Why is there such a stigma linked to mental health? This is a question we need to explore in order to work out how to actually knock the stigma down.The bottom line is that if you are struggling with your mental health, it is going to affect your work and everything else in your life. You might make mistakes and find your current office seating plan hard to cope with, you might find it difficult to concentrate and come up with new ideas around the modern boardroom tables, and the likelihood is that you’re not going to get enough sleep every night before you turn up to work the next day. All of this affects your day to day tasks, and as an employer, if you don’t create a supportive and inclusive environment for employees, allowing them the opportunity to talk about issues that are bothering them, productivity will suffer as a result. In the past, someone who was struggling with their mental health didn’t want to speak out about it out of fear of seeming weak or lacking in personal strength. Of course, we know that is complete garbage, but times have thankfully changed. Those who lived through those times may still have lingering socially placed ideas such as those, i.e. you keep quiet and you deal with it. Keeping quiet and trying to deal with it is not going to help, it’s going to make it worse. Knocking down this society-wide stigma is something which a lot of work is being put into, with various campaigns, and even the young Royal getting involved. Whilst progress has been made, we’re not quite there yet. As an employer however, you can do a lot to support your employees, and as a colleague, you can be on the look out for any of your office buddies who may be struggling. Mental health awareness at work is a vital element for everyone to know about and understand. Sometimes a little support goes a long way.And make sure you use the Office Chair Singapore of Ardent Office Furniture (AOF) Singapore.
