The Cost of Underprioritizing Mental Health
You do all you can to impact productivity, shape the culture of your organization as well as to ensure the fulfillment of each and every individual you lead. But while you’re trying to address all the challenges your team members face, it’s easy to underestimate the importance of mental health.
The cost of underprioritizing mental wellbeing is more than lost productivity, its:
- low morale leading to disconnection
- loneliness leading to isolation
- stigma leading to feeling alienated
- overwhelm leading to burnout
About Dr. Shahana,
Speaker Mother Healer
I know first hand the consequences of mental health. I felt isolated, I felt confused, I felt numb. When I realized that it was my responsibility to train my brain to lead a more fulfilled life was the day that everything changed
Evaluate and Improve Your Mental Well Being
The Optimal Health Pyramid is a unique framework for you to evaluate and improve your mental well being
Evaluation of your life through the OHP will allow your employees to:
- Feel connected and understand that they are not alone in their struggles.
- Feel acknowledged that they work for a company that puts value on mental wellbeing
- Feel hopeful that they have a roadmap as to what areas in their life is in need of attention
I do this to have the conversations all of us want to be having but are too ashamed to do so. I want audience members to feel acknowledged/understood. I want them to feel like they can look at their entire lives not just the side them in business. I want them to know how to access help if needed.
