Global Health Psychiatry, LLC is a company that focuses on empowering communities through mental health and wellness. We are psychiatrists who we uniquely trained as medical physicians and are also distinctively aware of the how people think and approach their work environments.
Often companies will have the best of intentions, and spend hours of planning, but miss the key issue of how human behavior and unconscious thoughts impact the workplace and the delivery of services. Developing and empowering a safe and effective workplace to grow and not be idle during stressful life changing events will enhance productivity and the creative spirit for continual growth.
Why is Emotional Safety Important?
Every employee is an individual with their own vantage points and unique needs. So often, due to the work environment employees are not being heard. Their viewpoints are not expressed which in turn causes disagreements and poor productivity. The issue that promotes a lack of communication is because employees don’t feel safe in expressing how they feel.
The plan was great, but the execution was poor.Well what happened?
Why did the project fail or not get the expected results?
The result of poor internal communication is that everyone does not buy in. Lack of empathy and understanding impairs growth. Emotional safety is key. For example, without safety both mentally and physically during the pandemic of race and virus, companies will be ill-prepared to face challenges in the workplace.
Why is Racial Awareness important during the Pandemic?
Global Health Psychiatry serves to bridge the gap between employees and their awareness of race and culture during the COVID pandemic and racial crises. Understanding issues of race and illness has come to the forefront of American society. The year of 2020 has made companies come to realize that their past training on diversity and inclusion has left them woefully unprepared for today’s climate. This disconnect is causing difficulties within management levels, throughout all employee levels and individual work spaces. This also leaves employees without being versed in the current climate in dealings with the company and the public. The workplace is a microcosm of the rest of society.
What must companies do NOW?
- Be prepared for the 20th century work environment
- Recognizing cultural change in the workplace
