Briefly described, mental health issues in the workplace are many conditions that affect employees’ state of mind. These conditions range from mild depression, stress, and severe anxiety and may result in burnout and nervous breakdowns. Substance abuse may also perpetuate mental health issues.
The mental health project has produced the first version of the “mental health in the workspace policy” in collaboration with the national stakeholders. The policy will support and guide the factories in the garment sector to enhance the workers’ mental health in the garment sector.
