One in every four people will struggle with a mental health concern in their life (WHO). In this episode we talk with Navlika Ratangee, clinical psychologist and director at ICAS, on normalising mental health in the workplace.
We discuss how leaders have a critical role in creating a culture of care and an environment for employees to thrive, the cumulative effect stress and anxiety has on us, and why we need to destigmatise discussions of mental health in order to prevent burnout and breakdowns. One of our favourite reminders from Navlika, "We need to be kind to each other."
