BLOOM! At Work! A Mental Health Guide for Leaders by Tasha Broomhall
This book will provide knowledge about the relevance of mental health issues, a brief overview of common mental health issues and possible functional impacts and a range of proactive strategies and resources that may assist both the employee and the organisation.
A lot has been written about mental health, but it is often very theoretical and hard to translate into people’s everyday understanding. Tasha Broomhall has now written several books that explain exactly what mental illness is and how we can deal with it in our lives. This new book, like the others, is practical and down to earth, based on thorough research, and incorporates Tasha’s engagement with managers, supervisors and employees in a wide range of organisations. One of the special features if Bloom at Work is its insightful use of case studies of real people’s journeys in the workforce. I hope that it finds a place in the resources not just of HR departments, but of all concerned managers.
