On a personal note I have “wrestled” with bipolar disorder and alcoholism for decades. I know first hand what others are experiencing. This includes the damaging stigmas associated with these diseases. I have also seen how far behind many organizations are in addressing the topic of mental health in the workplace – which is the primary focus of this blog. Organizations are really missing an opportunity to build employee loyalty and increase productivity.
I believe I have a unique perspective on mental health in the workplace by being a Co-Founder of Colbeth Children’s Mental Health Clinic, a bipolar patient, and a CEO. I hope you enjoy my IBPF blog HERE.
