93: ”Yes, you can talk about mental health at work!” | Guest Melissa Doman, MA

In this episode I am speaking with Melissa Doman, MA, Author of Yes, You Can Talk About Mental Health at Work (Here’s Why And How To Do It Really Well).

We talk about mental health in the workplace and why now more than ever this is so important to be talked about in the workplace. 

Her book is a fantastic handbook on how to approach this sensitive conversation in the workplace.  We addressed the approach of self-advocacy in the workplace as an individual contributor and a leader, the “toxic positivity trend”, and so much more. 

This episode is dedicated to all who are in the workplace and managing mental health. I genuinely wish I had Melissa’s book back in the day in my corporate life, her book is a must-have in each team. 


From the amazon book listing:

Taking a realistic approach, through research, stories of lived experience and applied techniques that anyone can use, the book includes information on:-

  • How we bring our beliefs and experiences around mental health and mental illness into the workplace

  • The importance of understanding how the language we use, consciously or unconsciously, impacts us

  • Ways to manage the challenges around having mental health conversations at work

  • ‘How-to’ conversation guides

  • Concrete tips on ways to action this education individually or at a team level

After reading this book, you'll feel empowered and equipped to have constructive, meaningful conversations about mental health in your workplace
