Topic: Mental Health in the WorkPlace

Have you ever said to yourself, “I’m a Project Manager not a mental health/illness counsellor.  I shouldn’t have to deal with this.” Well guess what, it is a part of being a Project Manager.  If you don’t take care of it, you know it will impact your projects success.  So what can you do?  We will discuss how mental health issues impacts the workplace and why it is you that needs to be prepared.
