Episode #84 – Series on Mental Health In The Workplace: Eliminating Stigma : Garen Staglin

Today’s podcast is Part 2 of our Series on Mental Health In The Workplace. Teresa is joined by Garen Staglin founder and Chairman of ONE MIND. Teresa and Garen discuss eliminating the stigma of mental health in the workplace.

Teresa and Garen discuss how the employer can “reframe” the issue to make the employee more comfortable at work with mental health. Garen gives his personal experience and says “It’s ok, not to be ok.”
