The statistics for mental health issues globally and in Asia have been increasing. Natural disasters, loss of lives, starting or ending a new job, leaving home… they can be sources of stress and apprehension for many of us. In a survey conducted by Mental Health America, results show that “workplace stress contributes to increased mental and physical impairments. 80% of employee respondents stated that workplace stress affected their personal relationships and 35% “Always” miss 3-5 days a month at work.” Many are also reluctant to avail of mental health services because of the “stigma” and are embarrassed to seek help. Having a positive mental health will allow people to realize their full potential, cope with life’s stresses, increase work productivity and help employees make meaningful contributions to the company and their communities.
