No workplace should be unsafe to work in.
Every single person can be healthier mentally.
It takes more than just running a few mental health workshops, or sticking up posters to help your staff, though. And when it comes to employee health and wellbeing, we want to be building people up and giving them strategies to thrive not just trying to prevent poor mental (and physical) health.
We also need to be looking at the whole person if we’re going to help someone become more mentally healthy. Why? Consider this:
So, what comes first? The chicken or the egg? Or in this case – depression or a chronic illness?Our point is – we need to address the health and needs of the WHOLE person. Poor physical health can lead to an increased risk of experiencing poor mental health outcomes. Similarly, poor mental health can negatively impact on physical health, leading to an increased risk of health conditions.
Food / what we eat is another great example of why we must address physical and mental health together. The state of our mental health can have a big influence on what food we choose to eat, just as the food we eat can hugely influence our mental health:
You can educate your staff around healthy food choices and lifestyle choices to make but you can’t put rules around what they do and don’t eat! This really highlights the importance of education and awareness. You can’t make a change if you don’t know you should, or if you’re not motivated enough to do so – that’s where we come in!
No matter what type of workforce you manage and what your mental health goals are, we have a program to help. From addressing lifestyle factors to boost mental health and resilience, to improved health and performance or addressing the role of our individual brain chemistry make-up – we’ve got you covered. Contact us today to find out more about what we can offer you and your staff.
We strive to obtain voluntary, monthly engagement in excess of 80% and long term behaviour change of more than 60% in your employees' identified risk areas. This is just one client's story.
