Why is Mental Health Awareness important?

It has become more important than ever to ensure that you are aware of your own mental health, as well as the health of your employees and colleagues. We are living in an ever-increasing stressful world, meaning that looking out for the signs and symptoms of various mental health conditions is a duty that everyone should undertake.

1 in 4 people will experience some kind of mental health illness during their life, with women being at more risk than men. Although women are more likely to suffer an illness, men are more likely to commit suicide, with ages 25-45 being at the highest risk. There are numerous campaigns out there to encourage people to talk about their mental health, it is strongly suggested that if you are experiencing any of the signs and symptoms of poor mental health, you talk to someone as it is proven that even talking can help.

Employers

Employers have a duty of care for their employees, meaning they are responsible in ensuring that they actively monitor their employees physical and mental health wellbeing. More companies are choosing to receive mental health awareness training which will help management (HR Manager, Senior Managers, Directors etc) with identifying if their employees are struggling with any conditions. Employees should also look out for their colleagues. They can do this by understanding the different types of mental health conditions as well as the key warning signs which may tell them if a colleague is either suffering from an illness or at risk.

Individuals

It is important to take care of your own mental health, as an individual. Our lives can be incredibly stressful with work stressors and day-to-day pressures, so it is essential you plan some down time where you allow yourself to unwind and recover. It is proven that even just switching off electronic devices for 1 hour before bedtime will increase our quality of sleep, and reducing our risk of mental health conditions or burnout.

Having conversations with friends or family that may be suffering from Mental Health conditions is also of importance. Learning how to strike up these conversations and enabling people to trust in you is a great tool to have. Learning to identify the signs of mental health conditions can help save lives and get people the help they need. Our Mental Health Awareness Training provides you a a specific overview of various conditions and how to spot them.

Mental Health Conditions

There are numerous mental health conditions that everyone should be aware of. Having just a basic knowledge of common illnesses will allow you to understand what others are going through and identify the signs and symptoms of someone suffering from them.

Depression is one of the most common mental illnesses in the modern world. Over 300 million people across globe suffer from depression-related illnesses – the actual figure may be mugh higher as there is a group of people that haven’t been diagnosed. Depression is much more than just a low-mood, as it can impact your day-to-day life including work, family, self-confidence and motivation.

Second to depression is Anxiety, which is thought to affect over 7.3% of the worlds population. It is one of the most common, debilitating conditions which can have serious implications for individuals. Anxiety can cause not only internal, mental symptoms but it can also manifest itself with physical symptoms too, such as nausea, sweating, increased heart rate and breating rate, as well as high blood pressure.
