In the age of an ongoing pandemic and high inflation, it’s no doubt that people’s mental health will suffer. Work responsibilities can only add to that stress. Here are ways employees can address their mental health, according to Forbes.  

Be Honest 

If you’re facing workplace challenges that could be impacting your mental health, it’s important to be honest as you can with your manager. He or she can only help you if you’re direct with them about what you’re dealing with.  

Identify Your Resources 

Does your company offer you mental health services? Do you have an HR department? Make sure that you know what systems you have in place, so you know where to seek help.  

Share Your Thoughts Regularly  

Having one-on-one check-ins with your managers is a good way to let them be aware of how you are doing mentally. Sharing with your manager can help identify issues in the workplace that could be affecting your mental health.
