Managers and leaders need to pay attention to the language they use at work. This includes not joking about mental health conditions; “he’s acting crazy” or “she is nuts”.

Strong leaders encourage honest and open conversations about challenges employees are personally facing. It’s important to notice if someone seems constantly stressed-out. Asking if you can help lead them to resources they may find useful could really give them the boost they need in the right direction.

Training your managers to know how to be proactive when dealing with mental health issues can help prevent or alleviate employee burnout.
