‘Doing something’ about mental health is daunting.
Whether you work in Internal Comms, HR, Wellbeing or Health and Safety, it feels complicated. Personal. Sensitive. Confusing.
What can you do?
What should you do?
I know the impact that simplicity, humanity and empathy can have.
The most powerful conversation someone has ever had with me about my mental health was to simply say: “I don’t think you’re OK.”
That person wasn’t ‘qualified,’ hadn’t been trained. They set aside their fear of doing the wrong thing and said something very simple and empathetic.
It had a huge impact on me. It made me realise I wasn’t OK. I started to learn about what might be going on, how I could help myself, what treatment was available.
That was two years ago this month.
Now I want to help you harness the power of a simple, human approach in your organisation.
