Mental health in the workplace… The story so far
1 in 4 people will experience mental illness in their lifetime (WHO, 2001) and as much as 20% of people in the workplace have a mental illness at any given time. There is a lot of stigma and misinformation about mental health, which creates a barrier for individuals to seek help, seek training interventions and support
Whilst SAFMH recognises the importance of considering the unique challenges, needs and varying contextual realities of different organisations, and to be adaptable to these factors, we place a high value on providing targeted and consistent information that speaks to as wide a range of audiences as possible. With our training packages, SAFMH is always seeking opportunities venture into new territory and communities to impact change and bring awareness to mental health. Over the past two years, through direct service delivery, partnerships and collaborations, we have provided trainings, exhibitions, presentations, workshops and taster sessions to a variety of corporates, government entities, public and private schools, institutions of higher learning and religious organisations.
