Mental health in the workplace has become an increasingly common topic of discussion and I personally feel it is about damn time! 

For many years, mental health has been a taboo subject, especially in the workplace, despite work stress being linked to poor mental health on a fairly frequent basis. 

'Business in the Community' have called for more training within companies for managers and teams alike, on knowing how to recognise, handle and support mental health issues within work. 

Having personally handled situations within the work place, I can vouch for the fact that having a supporting manager, team and company made a huge difference to my situation and helped me handle everything in a much better way. 

Mental health issues do not affect a person's ability to do their job. But training staff on how to address/ handle such issues will definitely ensure a happy and mentally healthy environment.
