Mental Health Awareness Week
In a world filled with ever-evolving technology, mental health in individuals has taken its toll. With a scary decline in people’s wellbeing (especially since the pandemic hit), it’s important for us to show our support towards the state of other’s mental health & encourage people to voice their feelings without the fear of being judged.
Did you know that a 2014 study found that almost 20% of people, in the UK, aged 16 & over, showed symptoms of anxiety or depression? At Techienology, we understand the struggles that most individuals face. Therefore, the wellbeing of our workers come first.
To promote a healthy work/life balance, we asked our staff to delete Outlook emails & Microsoft Teams from their mobile phones to ensure that when they’re away from work, they’re really away from work. This encourages them to switch off from their work duties & focus on more important things, such as hobbies, friend & family, and more.
Mental health at work matters. It’s crucial for you to feel safe & at ease in your workplace, as it can increase productivity, strengthen relationships & encourage important work-related conversations. Having a healthy work environment means having healthy relationships with staff, which is crucial if you want to have a solid, loyal team.
Nobody should have to struggle alone. There is always someone there for you, whether it be a family member or a complete stranger. Reach out if & when you need. Let’s erase the narrative of mental health being a taboo subject. Everyone faces a burn-out at some point in their life. If you’re struggling, there are multiple resources for you to use.
