Mental Illness in the Workplace


How can you tell if someone in your company has a mental health issue? What can you do if so? David Duerr of Ozark Guidance Center joins host Carrie Perrien Smith on Business: Engaged! He’ll talk about how to help people dealing with mental health issues.

Everyone has a bad day and, admittedly, your workplace might make you crazy once in a while. But how do you know whether someone is struggling with mental illness or a stress-inducing issue that mimics the same symptoms?

In this episode of Business: Engaged!, we talk with David Duerr, Director of Business Services at Ozark Guidance Center. We discuss the issues that affect the mental well-being of our team members. He’ll talk about anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, and situational issues that can bring drama and trauma to the whole workplace. He’ll also give us tips for opening the conversation with that individual who is struggling, assessing how to help them, and discussing options.
