World Mental Health Day 2023

Mental health is critical to human health and wellbeing, yet mental health problems are more likely to go undiagnosed and untreated than physical health problems. With the pandemic, international conflict, increased financial stress from inflation, and concerns about food and fuel shortages, mental health is being challenged in new ways.

PLANNING AHEAD FOR WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY

World Mental Health Day is an opportunity for individuals and organisations around the world to raise awareness of mental health issues and to mobilize efforts in support of mental health. A growing number of employers are using observance of the day to do the following:

  • Draw attention to positive mental health practices
  • Remind employees of the mental health supports available to them
  • Reduce the stigma sometimes associated with seeking help for mental health problems

If you would like to observe World Mental Health Day at your organization, this booklet outlines steps to consider in planning the day.

Organisational risk management has broad applications, from mitigating financial risk to recognising and managing risks in safety, quality, health, legal liability, and the organization's impact on the environment. Risks to and from an organisation's employees fall within the scope of risk management, typically with a focus on reducing the risk of accidents, injuries, or illness and putting controls in place to prevent employee theft or fraud. Workplace safety, for example, is commonly seen as part of risk management, and that concern extends to aspects of employee health, such as fatigue, that can impact accidents and error rates.

The concept of burnout is complex and the employer’s duty of care responsibility to assess and mitigate foreseeable risk is often misunderstood, even by well-meaning responsible employers. The purpose of this paper is to provide some general guidance for employers—and in particular HR practitioners—in meeting their baseline duty of care obligations to worker burnout regardless of the sector in which they operate. The author, Lisbeth Claus, is a Professor Emerita of Management and Global Human Resources at the Atkinson Graduate School of Management of Willamette University.

Workforce surveys around the world suggest that employee burnout – already a significant problem – may be getting worse. For employers, this can mean a costly drag on productivity. When workers are exhausted and emotionally distant from their jobs, they are unable to perform at their best and are more likely to make mistakes. They are also more likely to leave their jobs – draining the organisation of skills, knowledge and experience. Burnout at work can also affect all aspects of life, from health and relationships to career and finances.

Money is one of the most significant sources of personal stress. Financial stress, like all forms of excess stress, affects a person’s physical and mental health. While financial stress is a personal problem, it also impacts worker performance. Employees can be distracted and exhausted by personal financial concerns, and their money worries can lead to higher rates of illness and absenteeism.
