In this engaging discussion, a panel of leaders from diverse backgrounds addresses the two ends of a productive mental health conversation: how we push ourselves to become more comfortable advancing the conversation from our own perspective, as well as how we become better at creating a safe environment for others to share. What are the initial steps to overcoming our own hesitation about sharing our struggles and how do we share them productively in a way that advances, rather than sidetracks, the conversation? What are the “must-do’s” and “please don’ts” when listening to a friend or colleague’s struggles, to ensure we take a supportive posture? What are some specific things that need to be prioritized in the workplace to make mental health awareness the norm? The panelists discuss these topics and many more.
