Did you know that May is Mental Health Awareness month? Mental health isn’t the easiest thing to talk, but when one in five Americans will experience some struggle with mental illness in their lifetimes, it’s an important topic to cover.
Luckily, we talked to an expert on creating a culture that supports mental health conversations. Jimmy Westerheim is the founder of The Human Aspect, the largest human experience library in the world. He and his team interview people after overcoming their toughest challenge in life to understand how they did it. In addition to providing a place for people to connect with others going through similar challenges, the results are being used and studied by mental health professionals around the world.
From his own experiences and experiences talking to others about their struggles, Jimmy has created a culture of openness among his employees to help them feel supported and cared for no matter what's happening in their lives.
So, how can you create a culture of openness in your business to support your employees’ mental health? Listen to Jimmy’s episode of The Growth Lab Show on iTunes or our website, and download the Lab Notes for a deeper dive!
