In an effort to combat the stigma of mental health issues in the workplace, Kathleen Saxton, founder of Psyched Global, has teamed with The Drum to offer a series of tips for professionals on how to handle the issue at work.
Saxton, who has worked with a number of senior marketing professionals over the years via her mental wellness consultancy, will offer five tips through a series of videos to inform and help deal with issues in the workplace and help bring more of an understanding to the issues when they are encountered.
The weeklong series, entitled Mindfulness Matters, will run exclusively on The Drum as part of its efforts to help combat mental health stigmas at work, a topic being tackled through its Do It Day event which will take place in November.
Stephen Lepitak, editor of The Drum, commented: “I wanted Kathleen to offer her expertise to the industry as I believe anything that helps those battling with mental health issues is well worth the effort. It’s a growing problem that we as an industry need to battle openly, and talking about it can only help. Kathleen’s experience through Psyched is unique to this industry and I am grateful to her for giving us her time and insights for this upcoming series. Through this, I really hope we can help.”
The five-part series will run over a five-day period later in October ahead of Do It Day taking place on 16 November in Singapore, London and New York.
