Stigma to Strength: Mental Health in the Workplace

Mental health is often the last thing talked about in the workplace, but arguably the most important. The groundswell to destigmatize employees who are coping with psychological challenges is pressing as employers grapple with recruitment and retention of top-level talent. This rings particularly true for the fast-paced world of startups. Culture Trip Founder, CEO, and former psychiatrist, Dr. Kris Naudts is putting mental health initiatives at the heart of his company with pioneering tactics such as actively recruiting staff who are dealing with mental health issues. This panel will focus on how to address mental health in the workplace, why it’s vital and how Culture Trip and other like-minded brands are leading the charge to destigmatize mental health issues.
