Mental Health in the workplace

Working is good for our mental health because it can give us purpose and self worth. But a negative working environment that has bullies or makes you feel harassed can lead to physical and mental health problems. As an employee, if you want to improve your work environment, one way might be to make an appointment to speak with a supervisor or Human Resource Manager about the issues your are having and coming up with a plan to resolve them. As an employer, it is your responsibility to have an open and safe environment for communication.
