UN introduces workplace mental health and well-being strategy

The United Nations (UN) has introduced a strategy to deal with workplace mental health issues and the well-being of its staff by dealing with the stigma attached to it.

Antonio Guterres, UN Secretary-General, has said that UN staffs struggling with anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder or other circumstances have reported feeling isolated and ashamed, with no-one to turn to for help.

He further observed that mental health diagnoses account for almost a quarter of all days lost to sick leave, and was the leading cause of disability pensions.

"The UN can and must do better in supporting its staff, and it starts with the new strategy we are setting in motion," Guterres stated.

He also added, "The strategy also underscores the need to care for each other, and to reach out to colleagues who may be in distress.  Colleagues must find ways to help them feel supported, not judged. We also need to educate ourselves about the early warning signs of mental illness."
