October is Mental Health Month, but you’ve probably heard all about it. It’s all about creating mental health awareness. But how much more awareness do we need? Don’t we know by now that mental health is important, that is costing us massively, and that we need to do something about it? And the even bigger question is what will we DO with our increased awareness?
I’m hoping that as a society, in Australia and around the world, the increased awareness results in healthier people, not simply in the identifying of more sick people.
It is my hope that, as you read this month’s WorkLife issue, you too get ideas for that kind of frank discussion. Our cover has Real Housewives of New York Wives star, Bethanny Frankel. An exceptional business woman and someone who has had her share of difficult times and has had to develop resilience. It’s a short but interesting interview. Check it out.
