Manage Stress to Tackle Mental Health Problems in the Workplace

  • Amy Elizabeth Mickel California State University, Sacramento

Abstract

The number of people suffering from mental health problems in the workplace is alarming. As costs resulting from lost productivity increase, so does the need for work organizations to address mental health issues. Because stress negatively contributes to mental health, employers are encouraged to tackle mental health problems by assisting employees with stress management. In addition to creating a supportive environment, training employees on boundary and coping strategies, promoting and supporting daily recovery efforts, and encouraging and facilitating access to social support are described as three approaches work organizations may want to embrace.
