PCPS mental health resources

Dec 31, 2021 ·

Mental health influences one's ability to work productively and cope with the stresses of daily living. A healthy psychological state, the less observable inner world of your employees, is central to performance for a knowledge worker. Healthy employees are vital to the success of your firm, and their mental health cannot be ignored in the pursuit of goals. It's imperative that we learn how to tend to our state of mind. As we do, we will see an increasingly positive effect on job performance and firm success.

The following PCPS resources for self and firm are provided in PowerPoint format. While firms can download and customize these items for presentation purposes, also consider printing or posting on internal sites specific slides that will help to create a firm culture dedicated to mental well-being.

Resources for firm

A business imperative

Recognize the prevalence of mental health conditions and understand how these conditions relate to the workplace. Additionally, understand the business case for mental wellness and how mental health can affect the bottom line.

Recognizing signs in others and intervening with compassion and respect

Resources for self

You are not alone – the prevalence of mental health conditions

As we talk more openly about our own mental health, we begin to see that no one is exempt from experiencing periods of challenge over the course of their career and lifetime. Destigmatize mental conditions by understanding their prevalence and learn the wide range of conditions categorized under mental illness.

Recognizing signs in self and when to seek professional help

Understand the signs and severity of your own mental health conditions and determine if you should seek professional assistance.
