Workplaces such as corporations demand mental agility, time and effort. Sometimes, for some individuals, it can be exhausting and overwhelming to cope with requirements which can cause further damage to their state of mind. In India, the mental health of corporates is rarely addressed. This, thereby leads to less awareness about interventions that can be helpful for corporates and their organisations.
Dance movement therapy in corporate settings is relatively a new form of intervention, especially in India. Ms. Disha Sampat, a certified dance movement therapist, has been providing professional support for the mental health of corporates and is associated with various corporations in Mumbai and other parts of the country.
In this MHT Live, Ms. Disha mentions the key symptoms for recognising mental health problems of corporates in a workplace setting. Moreover, she also shares numerous tips on how employees can manage their mental and psychological wellbeing at an individual level. Another important takeaway from this MHT Live with Ms. Disha Sampat is learning about DMT skills that can support corporate roles and responsibilities at their workplace.
