By Aaron Humes: Theirs are some of the more challenging and more thankless jobs in Belize, and when both customers and employees of the Public Service are stressed and on edge, as has occurred recently, the results can be less than optimal.

On the occasion of World Mental Health Day, the Ministry of the Public Service, Constitutional and Political Reform, and Religious Affairs wants public servants to know that there is help available through the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP).

The Ministry plans to increase service utilization by public officers and maintain visibility of the EAP and its presence throughout the wider public service; increase public officers’ knowledge and awareness of the EAP and its services available; improve, redefine and enhance the relationship between the EAP and public officers; and reduce the existing stigma and discrimination within the wider public service as it relates to seeking help for mental health challenges.

The EAP remains diligent and is a confidential and professional counseling service for employees whose work performance and overall well-being are affected by environmental stressors.

The Ministry of Public Service says it “recognizes and continues to support the tenet that its public officers represent its most important and valuable resource. Therefore, through its Employee Assistance Programme, the ministry will continue to assist public officers in striving to be happier, more confident, and more productive.”

The Public Service remains steadfast in its commitment to breaking the stigma of mental illness within the workforce and creating an environment and culture of acceptance and respect.
