Managing Mental Health In The Workplace
Mental Health Awareness
How can you be sure that your team are performing to their best? How do you know when they are feeling pressurised and stressed, so much so that they can’t cope? Until you know what capacity they have in their emotional cup you will probably just keep piling on the pressure, blinkered to their emotional needs. One way to measure how a manager deals with his team whilst under pressure/stress is for them to complete an online assessment on the Health and Safety Executive website. Follow this link for more information and look for Line Manager Competency Indicator Tool. http://www.hse.gov.uk/stress/mcit.htm.
Mental health is a state of well-being in which the individual realises his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.
Mental illness is a recognised, medically diagnosable illness that results in the significant impairment of an individual’s cognitive, affective or relational abilities. Mental disorders result from biological, developmental and/or psychosocial factors and can be managed using approaches comparable to those applied to physical disease (i.e., prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation).
