Use Employee Newsletters to Educate Employees about Mental Hygiene

There are over 11,000 listings in Amazon.com about "Practicing Good Mental Hygiene." This is a topic that can be discussed in many ways with your employee newsletter delivering articles on everything from stress management tips to parent ideas.


Mental hygiene is the practice of using techniques, strategies, and good thinking habits to help prevent harm to mental health and maximize a positive outlook for your life. Mental hygiene is more than practicing positive thinking just like oral hygiene is more than brushing your teeth by going to the dentist. Personal problems that linger despite attempts to resolve them on your own are an opportunity to use professional counselors or helping resources to examine goals, relationship stress, self-talk patterns, diet, sleep, and conflict resolution or stress management strategies. And the benefit of counseling resolution is always more lessons about mental hygiene going forward to prevent similar or related problems. Don’t struggle with lingering problems. Instead, take a path of discovery where solutions are accompanied by new ways of applying good mental hygiene needed to overcome roadblocks, fears, and frustrations in your pursuit of happiness.

To find great ideas on mental hygiene,  consider to paths. One is writing an article from a pictographic you discover on Pinterest, and doing so in your own words. Or finding press releases from the national institute on mental health that target specific human problems common to employees, families, and coworker relationships.

We commonly address this topic in Frontline Employee Wellness Newsletter. You can see a few copies of it and get a few issues downloaded at the link shown on the page.
