The Answers Are Obvious, The Bosses Don’t Care

If you ask the average executive about their employees’ mental health, they’ll usually say something related to wellness, mindfulness, or “self care.” If pushed further, said executive will refer to the HR department, or perhaps to some sort of nebulous internal program to “help employees deal with the stress of a challenging world.”

The reason that they do this is because they don’t really know what’s happening in their company, but they also don’t really care, because if they did, they’d realize that you can’t use therapy to beat a shitty job.
