My Mental Health Journey
I see a therapist and psychiatrist. I have experienced suicide in my family, and I, too, have considered suicide at the lowest points of my life. I have experienced drug addiction and alcoholism in my family, and I, too, struggle from time to time with the side effects of my addictive personality. I have a family history of depression and anxiety, and I, too, suffer from depression and anxiety. I share all this because I believe more than anything that visibility is the only way we will ever break the stigma around mental health. As a People leader, it is my job to create a workplace culture that understands mental illness and encourages mental wellness. What initiatives are you doing to break the stigma around mental health at your workplace and foster wellbeing?
