What Are Signs of Mental Health?
Signs of mental health and their impacts are lack of purpose, decreased morale, decreased productivity, loss of vitality and increased sick time. Mental health can be associated with depression, anxiety and grieving from various losses that are not limited to death alone (such as divorce, lifestyle, addictions, retirement, empty nest, health, mobility, etc.). All these mental health issues impact our employees and our lives on a day to day basis.
