Prioritizing the mental health and well-being of housing staff promotes organizational success and improves the overall performance of the workplace. Investing in well-being in the workplace demonstrates strong values and ethics and can better staff retention, increase staff commitment and enhance reputation. By offering support and resources to staff, employers can help foster a positive work culture which in turn leads to happier, more fulfilled, and productive employees.
It is not a part of the role of the housing staff to deal directly with some of the following issues. However, having the training and resources available to help recognize mental health and well-being issues is an important measure to ensure everyone has the knowledge and support they need in order to take steps to address these situations appropriately and respectfully.
