The HeadStrong Talkshow
The future of workplace mental health - Part 1: Away from the biomedical focus
Show Notes

In part one of this three part series of podcasts ( >listen to part 2<) (>listen to part 3<) I'm drawing on the World Health Organisations 2020-2030 'Mental Health Action Plan' and sharing their vision of how they want to transform the global mental health landscape, as they believe it's in desperate need of an overhaul

In their guidance document they highlight examples of good practise from around the world, some of which I share in this podcast

The focus of this episode is the W.H.O's desire to move the focus away from the biomedical model of mental health which focuses primarily on:

  • Diagnosis
  • Medication
  • Symptom reduction

Join me as I discuss the W.H.O's new vision for mental health and what this could mean in the workplace...
