Mental wellness is the topic of discussion between Nirad Tewarie, CEO of Amcham, and Mental Health Counselor, Dennise Demming.
He commented that the importance of Mental Health was brought to his attention when he began to focus on the Health and Safety Track at the annual HSSE Conferences which Amcham has been hosting for more than 26 years.
His personal experience with the suicide of his cousin has motivated him to be an advocate for mental health. He commented on the need for people in organizations to use the services available to them in their EAP programmes as well as the importance of de-stigmatizing mental wealth.
We all need to recognize that our mental well-being is just as important as our physical wellness and sometimes requires even greater attention. It is indeed an investment in our overall well-being.
