New on Social Science Insights blog: How can you better address the experience of stress and work? Research shows that stress comes from many sources, but the cumulative effect can lead to chronic illness. Sane Australia reports that one in five Australians will experience some form of mental illness.
Many people manage stress in unhealthy ways because they don’t understand the resources available to them or because they don’t have a good support system in place, including at work. Social science can be used to better understand and improve corporate mental health programs.
Managers can improve the culture of health and wellbeing through better training, lunchtime seminars, and by leading through example, and taking the stigma away from mental illness. Conversations about mental health should be a routine part of work.
