In the past, most organizations disregarded mental health. However, the term is getting some due awareness in our circles today. To further unpack the deeper psychological issues each one of us faces at work, OPENSPACE presented ‘Mental Health In The Workplace’ hosted at Impact Hub, Accra, Ghana on the 31st of May 2019. Our panelists; Kobby, Sasha, Sydney and Gabby shared their insightful thoughts & experiences on this topic.
The event presented a safe space for the panelists and the audience to truly share their experiences with high-stress levels, impostor syndrome, neglect, under-appreciation, abuse and many others in the workplace. We all left the event advocates of ourselves and our colleague's mental health. Let’s stop the stigma and work towards making our workplaces safe!
