Often, when mental health is referenced, it aligns with a clinical diagnosis or treatment. Whereas the reference of mental wellbeing encompasses all elements of prevention, intervention, and support. Mental health impacts 20-30% of the workforce, and mental wellbeing impacts 100% of the workforce. Both are important!
Organizations need to build a strategy that encompasses the full spectrum of mental health and wellbeing to become a mentally strong organization.
