So let me share some of my favorite lines from this interview: “Whoever is your role, you know, in an organization, whether you are a colleague, whether you’re a superior, whether you’re a manager. Our attitude towards mental health affects not only our own mental health, but the mental health of everybody working around and just have. Having that recognition that we are a whole person. We’re not just, you know, machine worker.” – Dr. Rozina
“Our productivity is really determined by our both physical and mental health. And when we are in optimum mental and physical health, then we perform at our best, then we produce our best, and then we solve the problems in the best possible way.” – Dr. Rozina
“The more confidence that we give in somebody, the more that they will give. That giving begets giving. And if we trust people, they will be more likely to be trustworthy”
“Companies that invested in mental health for their employees and they found over like a ten year span of the study that those who invented that invested $1 in mental health for every dollar they get, a $4 return on decrease absenteeism, increased productivity, better communications between coworkers, decreased, you know, long term use of, you know, when someone has to leave because they’re ill, those sorts of things that it was great for everybody.
