Mental illness: The cultural connection
Published by: LifeWorks,
Mental Illness Awareness Week is happening from October 3 to 9, 2021, and World Mental Health Day follows on October 10, 2021. To mark these occasions, let’s talk about how sociocultural background affects how we address mental health challenges, from spotting red flags to breaking down stigmas.
Starting these conversations and accessing support, while navigating cultural taboos, can be difficult. Scroll down for mental health content that promotes inclusion and understanding. It’s time to better support our diverse workplaces, communities, and families.
For one-on-one support, LifeWorks consultants are available 24/7 to provide mental health guidance to you and your family. Visit your EAP platform to get in touch today.
