Mental health affects performance.

Therefore, all organisations should be keenly interested in adopting practices that support good mental health.

Organisations should also studiously avoid any practice that has proven to be detrimental to mental health, such as poor management styles, unreasonable workloads and/or unrealistic deadlines.

Here are ten questions that the people in your management team should know how to answer.

1. What is "good mental health"?

2. What does it mean to say that a person has "mental health problems?"

3. How does the "mental health" of the workforce affect the organisation's financial results?

4. Do any of the managers or team leaders, use methods that might negatively affect the mental health of colleagues?

5. If yes, which specific negative management methods are you referring to?

6. Do any of the systems and processes used by your organisation, negatively affect the mental health of colleagues.

7. How can we improve our management and leadership style, to maximise the ability of the workforce to give their best performance?

8. How can we improve our information and technical systems, so that they support our workforce and empower them to feel terrific, and therefore able to give their best?

9. Is the physical environment conducive to good mental health? Is the environment uplifting, or does it feel grim?

10. Shouldn't we invest in a training day, when we could discover the answers to these important questions, formulate new plans, and make some progressive changes to the way we do business, which would be good for everyone and the organisation as a whole?
