I have been a hi-tech CEO for over 25 years and mental health advocate for the past two decades. I feel uniquely qualified to talk about Mental Health in the Workplace - since I have faced the challenges from both sides. I have had to wrestle with the "daily double" of mental health conditions - bipolar disorder and alcoholism. These are both rather large clubs with millions of members - but society and many businesses continue to stigmatize or are still trying to ignore these common conditions. This is a huge travesty which must be addressed - as tens of millions suffer in quiet desperation. In addition, organizations are missing out on a huge opportunity if they do not implement simple mental health policies. I hope this blog helps individuals and organizations better understand mental health. This will benefit society, organizations, and those who are needlessly suffering.
