Navigating Employee Mental Health: Insights and Initiatives from the PVP Panel Forum

Updated: Mar 13

Experiencing mental health challenges is a natural part of life. These issues can arise in our homes, in nature, and especially in the workplace, where they often become more heightened. The work environment differs significantly from our usual settings, which can lead to feelings of overwhelm and increased anxiety. At Premiere Value Provider, we understand that everyone carries their emotional baggage, but not everyone seeks professional help to address their distress. Some individuals, driven by a sense of independence, find it difficult to open up to professionals about their personal thoughts and feelings.

n recognition of Mental Health Day, we organized a panel forum titled ‘Challenges of Implementing a Mental Health Program Amidst the Ongoing Employee Mental Health Crisis Confirmation’ on October 10, 2023.

In recognition of Mental Health Day, we organized a panel forum titled ‘Challenges of Implementing a Mental Health Program Amidst the Ongoing Employee Mental Health Crisis Confirmation’ on October 10, 2023. The forum aimed to delve into the root causes of employee stress and and featured PVP's President and Director for Research and Analytics, Dr. Marshall Valencia joined by mental health experts, Mr. Homer Yabut, PhD, and Ms. Suzy Roxas, MBM, RPsy, CPAS.


During the forum, the panelists explored the primary causes of workplace stress and identified recurring issues with various triggers that impact employees' mental well-being. The panelists discussed many factors that can compromise our mental health, which, in turn, affects our job performance. According to them, our work performance plays a pivotal role in shaping relationships with colleagues and influencing our daily moods, making it crucial to recognize the need for professional help.


The panel forum not only shed light on crucial issues but also emphasized the importance of creating a safe space. The panelists introduced the "Listening Room," which offers counseling sessions, ideal for individuals who may not feel at ease sharing their problems in a larger group.


Despite the relatively short duration of the panel discussion, the enthusiastic response from the audience, marked by their numerous questions, demonstrated its success. We extend our heartfelt thanks to the engaged audience for their insightful queries and to our esteemed panelists, who shared their knowledge and experiences, making the discussion both engaging and educational!


Additionally, PVP introduced an upcoming public training program, ‘Mental Health Program Development: Best Practices for the Workplace,’ which will be launched in November. We eagerly await the participation of our audience from the panel forum!
