Dubai, 12 September 2022
The Society for Human Resource Management in the Middle East & North Africa (SHRM MENA) will host special talks and discussions around the emerging need to promote mental health and wellness in the workplace at its Annual Conference and Expo 2022. This workshop is one of many annual events that will take place at Atlantis The Palm, Dubai on the 28th and 29th of this month.
The increased efforts towards mitigating the rise in mental health conditions should be on the agenda of all workplaces across the globe. Making mental health and personal development an integral part of everyday life will definitely increase the well-being of each individual and surely help reduce the associated burden and costs on our societies.
Mental health is overlooked by many people and stigmatized even more. But attitudes are changing, and the pandemic has accelerated that shift. When employees open up, the overall feeling is that they felt worn down, burnt out and irritable at the end of the workday.
Marjorie Morrison, CEO & Co-Founder of Psych Hub, the world’s leading mental health education platform, will lead the discussion of how self-care needs to be made the new norm to deal with the issue before it snowballs into an all-new pandemic during SHRM MENA conference.
Morrison will delve further into critical concerns that impact employees’ mental health and wellness. During her workshop, she will discuss the benefits of prioritizing psychological safety, the influence of mental health stigma, and how employers can be mental health advocates in the workplace.
Ms. Achal Khanna, CEO – SHRM India, APAC & MENA, said, “Mental health needs to be put on our agendas now more than ever. We must unite our efforts and work together to promote mental health in the workplace across the globe and ensure the application of the right processes towards achieving equal access to quality healthcare and mental wellness. Only then we can achieve a healthier and more sustainable world for all. This event will help interpret regulations, apply new approaches, and succeed in disruptive times to achieve such goals and commitments and beyond.”
