Supporting mental health in the workplace is no longer a nice-to-have but a necessity. Creating wellness solutions to help their employees thrive is the first step. Similarly, employees can also encourage their employers to offer mental health programs at work.

The key points that one has to remember is that we need to heal ourselves so we can heal our family, our workmates, our clients and etc. In order to help others to heal we must first need to heal ourselves. To heal ourselves, we need to know how to deal with our emotions, pains, deprivations, unresolved conflicts, and any negative energy in our system that we have.
