Positive mental health is important because it allows individuals to cope with challenges and setbacks in their lives, both at work and at home. Positive mental health at work helps teams remain agile, motivated and happy.
It is also important to understand that a psychologically healthy and safe workplace can help prevent people in distress from moving into a state of illness. Understanding and knowing what to do and who to contact is key.
