Mind Blank’s mission is to reduce the risk of suicide through interactive performances in schools, workplaces, and communities. In 2020 we are collaborating with The Zen Zone to pioneer a program package to equip workplaces with the skills in knowing how to support individuals in times of need. As well as implement practical examples and exercises to bring a sense of wellbeing into an individual’s daily routines.
Mental health and wellness in the workplace starts by focusing on the causes and the reasons for the prevalence of workplace stress. Are there areas in your business where the mental health could be at risk? A good proactive strategy will put into place opportunities for staff to recognise early warning signs, where the employer will provide treatment, support, and recovery within the workplace setting.
