Mental Health Awareness for Small Businesses
Mental Health Awareness is gaining more traction as businesses realise the cost of not looking after their employees’ well-being.
Small Businesses Suffer More from The Negative Effects of Stress
If you are a small business owner with only a handful of employees you feel the negative impacts more. Your employees taking sick days reduces productivity straight away. Even if your employees turn up at work, when not feeling well because of stress related illnesses, their creativity, productivity and motivation is suffering very badly, which makes both of you to lose out.
What is Mental Health?
Mental health is about our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. With other words the way you think, feel and act both at home and at work, says a lot about your mental well-being.
When you are at a good place from the mental health perspective:
- you are able to deal with the negative impacts of stress quickly, easily and resourcefully
- perform better: you are creative, productive and motivated
- feel good about yourself and your life
- maintain good relationships with coworkers and in your private life, etc.
What do you gain, when you focus on mental health?
