[VIDEO] Mental Health and the Workplace


Kathy

Over the weekend, a new commercial caught my eye. It was a PSA about mental health. Directed by Ron Howard, it depicts the impact and pervasiveness of mental health in an elegant way:

1 in 6 adults lives with a brain-related disorder (depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, generalized anxiety, etc). Think about six people you know. I bet your list looks something like this: 2 parents, 1 significant other, 1 sibling, 2 friends. This means within your most intimate circle there is, statistically speaking, at least one person with a mental health problem. Since the video depicts not only the person with the mental health problem, but also a person connected to them, this got me thinking. By the time you account for the people directly impacted by a brain-related disorder and their loved ones, nearly all of us are connected to it, directly or indirectly. It makes me wonder how much our office environments are impacted – directly or indirectly – by untreated or poorly treated psychiatric problems.

About the Blogger: Hi, I'm Kathy G. Slaughter. Based on my personal experience and professional expertise, I believe "the un-examined life is not worth living." Un-examined patterns and beliefs hinder our ability to live rewarding and authentic lives. Our behavior, whether in or outside the workforce, consists of knee-jerk psychological reflexes. This reality limits our ability to be happy and productive in all areas of life. My passion lies in helping individuals and organizations identify patterns and beliefs that are limiting their ability to fulfill their role in an authentic and satisfying ways. My greatest goal is to connect with you and through our connection, transform how you perceive your life and your choices. Life is too short to live it un-examined.
