Mental Health has been a very important conversation being had by employers and employees and should be continued.
When faced with daily stress and mental health struggles, it can cause long term damage to your health, productivity and quality of life.
The Mental Health First Aid Kit is a resource all offices can use! By putting it somewhere easily visible, it demonstrates that Mental Health is just as important as physical health!
Try making one for your office and help your staff feel supported, open and willing to handle any stressors or issues as they arise.
Suggested items to include in the kits:
- Adult colouring pages
- pencil crayons
- stress balls
- pictures of pets
- Essential oils
- Tea/Hot Chocolate packets
- Stress Management flash cards
- Guided meditation and breathing exercises
- yoga mat
- and more!
You can get creative and add supplies that would benefit your work environment and coworkers! This is a great way to spread the message and break the stigma that Mental Health matters just as much as physical health!
