Recent studies have taken the help of modern technology along with the standardized practices of psychiatric evaluation to give a more rounded solution to workplace mental health. This enables mental health professionals to understand the personal and social lives of their clients- their lives outside of work.
Following this approach of bespoke mental health coaching allows for an evidence based plan for people to understand the trends in their mental health- factors causing them discomfort, contributing to their depression or anxiety and factors leading them to relapse. Client behaviours are closely followed in this approach in an attempt to chalk out a plan that allows them to identify stressors in future and help them build psychological and emotional resources to face those stressors in future and in case of a lack of such resources, how to avoid such situations completely. Bespoke mental health aims to understand what your colleagues need since the requirements differ greatly from organization to organization.
Some common mental health problems that can be identified are depression, anxiety, substance abuse and psychosis. Psychosis includes a range of emotions that contribute to a person’s detachment from reality leading to irritability, agitation, and in some cases often hallucinations. Bespoke mental health coaching aims to identify factors that put you or others at risk. SInce these factors vary largely from person to person, a very thorough understanding of the client’s history is required along with taking standardized tests to identify the mental health issue and an ongoing monitoring of the person’s activities inside and outside of his workplace. This can be done through journaling, using technology like apps to keep track of one’s emotions, monitoring their social media and the usage of certain apps on their smartphones.
