The workplace can be a pressurised environment. Home life can also be a source of stress. As a manager, you want your team members to bring their best self to work, to feel valued and motivated. You need to look out for their mental health and wellbeing as well as monitoring their job performance to achieve this. You also have a duty of care.
It can be much harder to spot a mental health issue than a physical condition, so you need to pay more attention to subtle clues. Recognising a problem early could save your team a lot of distress and save a lot of money for your business. Leading by example, you can help create a culture at work where people feel able to raise issues and the team look out for one another.
