Co-workers: What you can do

Early Warning Signs

Mentally healthy people are resilient and flexible. They have the capacity to manage stress and overcome daily challenges. When a co-worker can no longer manage workplace pressure, adapt quickly to change, take decisive action, or begins to perform poorly, there may be an underlying mental health problem or illness. A co-worker experiencing a mental health challenge or illness may appear angry or tired, miss work more often than usual, have more conflicts with co-workers, become quiet and withdrawn, or avoid previously enjoyable social situations.
