Our mental health is part of what makes us who we are. Having good mental health helps give us a positive sense of motivation and purpose to tackle life’s challenges, big or small. But when our mental health isn’t in such great shape, the impact can make it difficult to cope, having a negative effect on our lives and how we think, feel, or act. So, why is mental health training important in the workplace?

Everyone experiences ‘off days’ where we feel low or sluggish, or perhaps stressed and worried. For most of us, those feelings usually subside fairly quickly, but sometimes they last a little longer. When they do, it can lead to deeper mental health issues including depression and anxiety. In some cases, they can start more complex or long term problems including personality disorders or bipolar disorder.
