“Mental health needs a great deal of attention. It’s the final taboo and it needs to be faced and dealt with.”
Mental Health Wellness in Dentistry is dedicated to supporting and driving the need to look differently at mental health in the workplace. Its guiding philosophy is to ensure that there is a whole team approach to mental health wellness in the workplace and that ‘early intervention and safe signposting’ is a given.
By becoming part of this call-to-action and movement to embrace the need to reduce the stigma and provide a safe space to talk, the hope is that the team will have the opportunity to thrive at work. After all, mental health is everyone’s responsibility.
Mental Health Awareness Week:

Mental health is something that we all need to talk about, and we need to take the stigma away from it.
So let’s raise the awareness.
Let’s let everybody know it’s OK to have a mental illness.
Let’s let everybody know it’s OK to talk about it.
By adopting the correct framework for a Mental Health Wellness Lead within the dental workplace, dentistry will ensure mental health is a key priority, recognising the benefits of prevention, early intervention and safe sign posting.
