What does a good leader do when the team is overwhelmed with anxiety, burned out, or depressed? Responsible leaders must recognize the signs of declining mental health in their employees and empower them to take hold of help. In this episode of the Transform Your Workplace podcast, guest Lacey Partipilo addresses the timely and relevant topic of mental wellness with practice tips for business leaders. Lacey is a veteran when it comes to providing solid wisdom and insight to the Transform Your Workplace podcast audience.


  • Instead of trying to take on the burden of their team’s mental health, leaders should work to understand the benefits that the organization offers for mental wellness and encourage employees to take advantage of them.
  • Leaders need to take care of themselves before they can care for their team.
  • Leaders must recognize the challenges that employees face and strategize how the business will play an active part in addressing them.
  • Leaders should help break the stigma by not only talking about mental wellness in an open format but also emphasizing that seeking help is a healthy first step.
