Mental Health Awareness

Mental health in the workplace is a very important topic, as it can directly affect each employee on site. The individual may lose all regard to safety, not caring if they hurt themselves or others – their mind clouded by what is going on in their personal life.  The individual may also become disruptive on site and in more serious cases, could become violent in the workplace.  It is helpful to understand how mental health can affect the workplace, the contributing factors that lead to workers experiencing anxiety, depression, and PTSD, and how to get the individual or yourself the help needed.

    • “Demand & Control – Jobs that are characterized by high emotional and/or cognitive demands have a higher rate of sickness absence due to mental illness. This is particularly the case when the role involves a high job demand (e.g., time pressure) but low job control (e.g., low decision-making capacity).

  • Opportunity & Security - Roles involving variety, task identity, significance and appropriate feedback are more likely to be associated with higher levels of workplace well-being. Job insecurity, lack of appropriate resources, lack of learning opportunities, and a disproportionate pressure to perform are associated with poor workplace mental health.
  • Trauma - Occupations with regular exposure to traumatic events have an increased risk of mental health problems including depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This includes police officers, paramedics, firefighters, military personnel, medical staff, and journalists. A recent review estimated that 1 in 10 emergency workers currently suffer from symptoms of PTSD.

Relationships with colleagues & managers - Team relationships, and the focus on relationships placed by leadership, affect individual mental health outcomes. In many occupations, interpersonal relations are the most frequent source of workplace problems and stress, particularly if indicative of workplace bullying. Social support in the workplace, as well as perceived support from the organization, appears to have a protective effect against mental DISCLAIMER: Cleveland Integrity staff are not mental health or medical practitioners and any advice provided in these newsletters does not take away the requirement to seek professional advice where required and advise to seek further assistance via the links to resources at the end of this article.

  • health difficulties.
  • Leadership - Managers and supervisors play a clear role in the welfare of staff. The actions and opinions of someone in a leadership role can have a potent influence on a staff member at risk of mental illness. Research shows that managers provided with mental health training feel more confident in discussing mental health matters and have staff that display reduced psychological distress. Additionally, an inspiring, motivated, and caring leadership style has been associated with enhanced mental well-being.”

Although poor worker engagement and daily functioning may seem minor, those chronic conditions can lead to fatal outcomes.
According to the CDC, the Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction Industries see the highest rate of suicides among workers in the United States. The industry groups that had the highest suicide rates are:

Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction (males: 54.2 per 100,000)
Construction (males: 45.3 per 100,000)
Other Services (such as automotive repair; males: 39.1 per 100,000)
Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing, and Hunting (males: 36.1 per 100,000)
Transportation and Warehousing (males: 29.8 per 100,000; females: 10.1 per 100,000)

Know the warning signs, such as severe withdrawal or an extreme shift in mood that is out of character, impaired memory, or themes of conversation that center around suicide or self-harm. Take action immediately, offer support and refer to professionals.

To combat poor mental health personally, it is encouraged to increase your physical activity, eat healthy, get a full night’s sleep, and receive regular check-ups with your physician. If you know a coworker is struggling, it is important to make sure they feel comfortable asking questions and getting help. If you or a coworker has a serious mental health disorder, it is important to seek professional advice from your physician.

IMPORTANT RESOURCES

To promote awareness about the importance of mental health and stress management, CIS offers an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) through Magellan Healthcare. The core services offered are counseling, coaching, and online programs. If you personally are dealing with grief, health problems, family turmoil, there are resources to help you. Note: EAP records are completely confidential and CIS Is not informed of employee contact with Magellan.

Megellan EAP

In July 2022, 988 was designated as the new three-digit dialing code that will route callers to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. When people call, text, or chat 988, they will be connected to trained counselors who are part of the existing Lifeline network. These trained counselors will listen, understand how their problems are affecting them, provide support, and connect them to resources if necessary. The previous Lifeline phone number (1-800-273-8255) will always remain available to people in emotional distress or suicidal crisis.

Employee of the Month

CONGRATULATIONS!!

Marie Schaefer has been selected as our Safety Employee of the Month! We wanted to thank Marie for always putting safety first and dedication to making Cleveland Integrity #1.

Why is Safety so important to you?      
Marie: Safety is important to me because most importantly it saves lives and instills workplace confidence in employees. Along with confidence comes higher morale, which can lead to better performance and productivity.

Why do you think submitting near-miss reports is important?
Marie: I believe that reporting near misses allows us to develop a Safety Culture and allows us to identify actions and behaviors that could be potentially hazardous. This will enable us to address and prevent these issues before an incident or accident occurs.

Please be sure to submit your Near-Misses by May 27 at 5 PM CST for a chance to win prizes!  If you have previously won any prizes and would like to share photos, feel free to send us an email with the photos.
