This article gives insights on the mental health issue and its effects on business operations. A primary focus of this review was the mental stability and condition of the workers at Samsung Company. The task team was determined in understanding the procedures, mandates, processes, programs, and structures of the primary wellness units. This is due to the increased number of mental health concerns in the company. More employees now join the work promises with mental health diagnoses and hence require psychiatric care and professional counseling(Goetzel et al. 2002, p322). If this is not offered, the company is bound to face problems in performance. The unstable psychological state has made conflicts and accidents prone in the Samsung Company hence causing an alarm. Suicide attempts among employees have also become rampant. This article provides that the causes of mental illness among workers are due to, inflexible work hours, unclear tasks, inadequate health and safety policies, and poor management practices-just to mention a few. The article recognizes and challenges the status quo and demands for creative approaches to addressing the mental issue.
