For years, at Inspiring Workplaces we have continuously fought to break the stigma around mental health.
This pandemic has been a double edged sword. On one hand, it has helped to shatter that stigma at a faster rate. Five years of progress being made in five weeks with organizations openly concerned for the mental and physical wellbeing of their people.
Bosses starting to catch on that there is no line between work and home when it comes to mental health. Something that became much easier to grasp with so many of us physically working from our dining rooms, bedrooms and more.
However, on the other hand, as the Covid-19 crisis drags on with no end in sight, it is starting creating clear and present challenges for our people and their mental health such as burnout, no boundaries or sense of control.
For World Mental Health Day 2020, we have created a quick guide of 10 top tips for you. It has been compiled from experts around the world on how to support the mental health of your people during these challenging times.
