How Entrepreneurs Can Promote Mental Well-Being In Workplace On Mental Heath Day

The World Health Organisation defines positive mental health as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes their own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.

Mental health is important for your business also. The mental health and well-being of your employees is crucial to the success of your company. This is because employees with good mental health will perform better in their work. 

Recently, AIIMS Bhubaneswar has planned to conduct a series of programmes to create awareness among the people especially youths on the importance of mental health. 

So, this Mental Health Day promotes mental well-being in your workplace by using the below campaign ideas.

Information & Awareness Workshop

Mental illnesses affect 19% of the adult population each year. However, only half of those affected receive treatment, often because of the stigma attached to mental health. Some of them are not even aware of their condition.

Thus, conducting an information and awareness workshop can provide helpful support to those affected in your workplace. It will also help in removing the stigma around mental illness which can be an overwhelming obstacle for someone who is struggling with a mental health condition. 

Talk It Out

Communication is the key to resolve many problems. Mental health disorders can cause people to withdraw or misread people or miss social cues. Organise a chat event to encourage your employees to have an interactive session over a cup of coffee or tea and some snacks.

Give them the opportunity to mingle socially and share or hear life stories of different people. Effective communication can help people recover better.

Peaceful Plantation

You can also consider conducting a plantation program. Bringing green to your office will not only improve the air quality of your workplace, but plants also help in keeping the mind stress-free and relaxed. Encourage your whole team to make their own planter to personalize their desk.

Painting Party

Pablo Picasso once said, “Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.” Art is a great way to express your emotions without words, process complex feelings and find relief. 

Organize a painting party for your employees as a fun activity on a mental health day. Creating art relieves stress, encourages creative thinking, increases brain plasticity, and imparts other mental health benefits. Painting stimulates the creative mind while relieving mental strain. A low-stress level leads to a happier, healthier lifestyle and helps improve overall mental health.
