World Mental Health Day is celebrated every year on October 10 to raise awareness about mental health and to eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness.

The World Federation for Mental Health launched World Mental Health Day in the year 1992.

The day is celebrated by organizing events and program to put the spotlight on mental health.

The theme for World Mental Health Day 2017 is ‘mental health in the workplace’.

People spend a huge part of the life in their office and the experiences at the workplace affect your physical as well as mental health.

If the working environment is negative, it can result in not just stress and mental problems but will also affect the productivity of the employee.

Workplace stress is a serious issue but unfortunately, only a few companies have sufficient resources to manage the stress.

The common causes of stress at workplace include excessive work, lack of work-life balance, low income, lack of growth opportunities, long nights and unclear expectations.
