World Mental Health Day 2017

Mental Health is as important as physical health but often it is not well-considered or we don’t talk about mental health issues due to the stigma. Mental health can determine our motivation, job satisfaction, professional relationships, as well as overall productivity and contribution for our organization. Mental health issues have been shown to increase employee absenteeism, lower rates of productivity and increased costs.
