Startups advised to adopt wellbeing pledge following World Mental Health Day

The onus is on both the employee by seeking help, discussing with line-manager or HR or dedicated mental health staff member, and compliance with treatment through medication, therapy and life-style changes; and equally on the employer.

"Mental health is a vital part of our overall wellbeing, and everyone deserves access to the mental health care and support they need", Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement on the occasion of the World Mental Health Day.

More and more employers are committing to making work a supportive place for employees who might be struggling with their mental health.

When it comes to mental health, it's important that all aspects of an individual's life can help with maintaining the health and wellbeing. It's important to send a clear message that workers who are suffering from stress or depression will receive support and not judgement.

1 in 5 people in Ireland now have, or have experienced a mental health problem.

Through a recent survey of 2,000 people at Shout Out UK surrounding their campaign around World Mental Health Day, they found out a shocking statistic - that 36% of young people believe Brexit has impacted their mental health. "Our collaboration with Mind is part of a wider Wellbeing Programme we have developed to deliver a programme of information and activities created to help advance good mental health practices".

Nokia has also said that it "has invited employee representatives of Nokia Technologies in Finland to cooperation negotiations". The VR-enabled camera was sold at United States dollars 45,000, although the original price was quoted as USD 60,000.

Canada still does not have a comprehensive mental health strategy and resources are still not available, as mental health is a largely hidden health issue. Throughout the month, they will share videos, webinars and case studies with other employers in order to move mental health up the workplace agenda.

The Foundation have published a guide (https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/publications/how-support-mental-health-work) and are calling on people to use it to make their workplaces more "mentally friendly". According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 350 million people across the world are now living with a mental illness. However, because of the assumptions of how these communities should be treated and the systematic oppression against these communities, it remains a challenge to give them the specific care and uplifting that they need.

JOLT also aim to live up to their name and by shaking up the perceptions of mental health in adulthood.

This year, the group conducted an online survey of 499 participants called Stigma in the Workplace, which revealed that "44% of the respondents indicated that they were uncomfortable with disclosing their mental health issue to a manager, which callers often express when they call the group's helpline looking for advice or help".

How do employers help employees to open up about issues they are experiencing?

"We still hear examples of mental ill-health being used as a form of casual insult". You are allowed to play to your strengths and feel able to manage your day in ways that are healthy for you. "In accordance with the American Disability Act that we follow now, if a person is diagnosed with mental health issues, accommodations can be made".
