Mental Health & The Workplace with Meera Visishtha
Show Notes

Have you ever stopped to consider the type of role mental health plays in a workplace environment? With all we know about emotional well-being and a person's mental state on their productivity, it's amazing that positive mental health hasn't received much attention until today. 

And, in the case of some companies, it's still overlooked or undervalued.

Prioritizing mental health in the workplace can lead to reduced stress levels, positive morale, and increased job satisfaction...which can, in turn, lead to better employee retention. Companies that have placed more emphasis on mental health for their employees by providing access to counseling services, promoting work-life balance, and creating a culture of open communication have seen significant improvements within their company culture, thus opening up new opportunities for growth and success.

In Season 3 Episode 6 of Stuff My Therapist Says, Sara Makin is once again joined by Makin Wellness Master's Level Clinical Intern Meera Vasishtha for an in-depth look at mental health and the workplace. Throughout this conversation, you'll discover:

  • Why companies are finally giving mental health the attention it deserves
  • The positive effects of a healthy, happy workforce
  • Why companies that don't emphasize mental health continue to struggle with morale, productivity, and retention
  • What you can do at your company to ensure mental health is prioritized
