Can a man still be brave if he's afraid?'

'That is the only time a man can be brave.'

- George R.R. Martin

Did you know that legendary leaders like Martin Luther King, Winston Churchill, and Abraham Lincoln, among others, suffered from mental health conditions? Did you know that well-known names today in the likes of Dwayne Johnson, JK Rowling, and Prince Harry, Former Duke of Sussex also suffer from mental health concerns? All the successful people above have done remarkable work in their sphere of work, despite suffering from a mental health condition, and that’s what we are here to talk about.

The public eye continues to look at ‘mental health’ as something that needs to be spoken about behind locked doors, and something that incapacitates humans, not realizing the grave need to destigmatize it and the possible far-reaching impact of actually addressing it as a basic concern and actively seeking to improve it. Given the magnitude of the potential threat of a global psychological pandemic, it is imperative now, more than ever, to translate all the ongoing conversations on focusing on mental health into actionable steps, through acceptance, compassion and an intent to build a global community that does not discriminate and shun, but rather addresses mental health and those that suffer with the same concern and care that is offered to anyone suffering from a physical ailment.

It is critical to recognize mental health care as a basic provision and not a generous offering.

The goodness of mental well-being:

Employee mental well-being is more than just a "nice to have" — it is a must for employers that need to remain competitive in today's hot market for talent. Wouldn’t it be great, if businesses deliver awesome values to the world — not at the expense of their people’s well-being — but rather, while making them shine. The bottomline will take care of itself when the employees are well & happy. This in essence, is what corporate wellness is about.

In this direction, People Matters brings to you “Pledge for Mental Health”, a movement that will bring together industry leaders to advocate on the importance of mental well-being for employees and businesses and the value these programs will add to the business bottomline.

Why should you pledge?

  • Becoming an employer of choice
    It is increasingly getting evident that top candidates are really looking for an employer that can offer them something more – that extra 10% that other organizations won’t. For these candidates, an organization that is committed to mental health and well-being and has a structured workplace wellness program in place will always be attractive.
  • Building a higher productivity and engagement index
    Employee mental well-being is more than just another wellness program — it is a way to improve workforce profitability and drive value for businesses everywhere. Better mental health naturally leads to improved customer experiences and reduced overtime costs to fill in for unexpected absences, further boosting the bottom-line impact of engaged workers.
  • Streamlining the culture of sustainability
    Culture is about people. And when people are actively engaging, wellness is becoming your corporate culture. The bottom-up, co-created initiatives are among things that keep the wellness culture going for long-term. Colleagues appreciate and trust each other more — people relationships is one of the strongest predictors of productivity.
