The World Health Organization defines mental health as a state of well-being where every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, work productively, and is able to make a positive contribution to her or his community. Every person is likely to experience a mental health challenge at some point in their life, and supporting mental health is a shared responsibility of individuals and organizations. The statistics are crystal clear. To help leaders and their teams work towards better well-being, we’ve compiled the following tips and techniques that can be applied immediately.
