Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. Mental health is a serious topic and with almost half of us experiencing mental illness in our lifetime, it is a subject that we need to talk openly about in our homes, workplaces and communities.
Tasha draws from her background in psychology, disability, psycho-social rehabilitation and business, to talk about an important topic for all business leaders in a relatable and sometimes humorous way that connects with individuals and audiences.
