This week's episode is sharing Mental Health Awareness Tips so that you can:

-Identify mental health issues
-Understand behaviours and and spot common signs
-Know how to converse with employees and understand needs
-Have confidence to handle difficult conversations
 

When pressure gets too much, outcomes are not positive – for the employee, their family, other team members and in your organisation as a whole. Therefore pro-active management of emotional health and wellbeing needs to be a priority so that it enables higher levels of performance – more easily.

 

Listen in as I share some of the causes of stress and pressure.

I advise you to think of a situation when you felt stressed or under pressure.  Then think about the areas impacted on how you were feeling.  What might it have been like for your line reports?  I cover some causes that might be helpful for you.

 

Some of the signs of stress and pressure and poor mental health are covered too. Listen when I share some ideas of areas that indicate signs that you might see in your people.

 

Mental Health struggles can produces a range of signs and symptoms and one person’s symptoms may differ greatly from another’s.  In recognising the impact, the focus is on changes in how the person usually is.  Symptoms can be categorised into physical, behavioural, psychological and emotional some of which are talked about on the podcast.

Remember there’s still a stigma about mental health.

It vitally important that you actively look out for opportunities to initiate a conversation with a team member, if you suspect that they may be struggling, so that you can start to offer support sooner.

On the podcast I share key ways that you can start the conversation and handle it well.
