S2 E23: How to Help the Mental Health Crisis in the Workforce with Sonia Funk

Season #2

"If the pandemic hadn't happened, the immediate need to help the mental health crisis wouldn't be as important as it is in the workforce right now." Sonia Funk is a Corporate Wellness Strategist and Speaker, Nutritional Therapist and Wellness Coach and in this episode she shines light on the mental health crisis in the workforce and what we can do about it.

We discuss everything from asking the right questions, asking the hard questions, and understanding the real reasons why people are struggling - and what companies can do to help it. We also talk about: 

  • The difference between mental health and a mental injury 
  • Why too much coffee harms your work boundaries
  • Why keeping work and life "separate" de-humanizes everyone in the workplace
  • Language used in the workplace must be updated or else the culture will not improve
  • Why lunch and learns will not help well-being and mental health in the workplace
  • The impact that motherhood has on the workforce
  • The power of nature for mental health benefits
  • ...and so much more

Trust me this is NOT an episode you want to miss!
