For Employers And Employees, Navigate Workplace Struggles With New Mental Health Resources From Supportiv

Share Article

Emotions are unavoidable in the workplace. Supportiv’s new article collection helps harness those feelings (a coworker's or one's own) for enhanced wellbeing and productivity.

If we don’t acknowledge what we’re going through, we’re less likely to find solutions and more likely to act out without even realizing.

For both employers and employees, unchecked emotions can complicate relationships and routines at work. Supportiv, the on-demand peer-to-peer emotional support service, releases a new collection of mental health resources to help understand and navigate emotional predicaments in the workplace.

From retail work to remote work, emotional turmoil can impact productivity, change how we connect with others, and even cloud judgment. If common emotional struggles in the workplace–like stress, procrastination, and burnout–are unaddressed, it becomes harder for us to respond to others’ needs with grace.

Supportiv CEO & Co-Founder Helena Plater-Zyberk elaborates on this idea, sharing that “In the workplace, each individual’s emotions impact the team. That can make it appealing to stuff down your feelings. You don’t want to be judged or bring everyone else down. However, if you don't find effective ways to cope with and heal tough emotions, their negative impact–both personally and on those around you–may increase.”

Supportiv Co-Founder Pouria Mojabi adds that “It can feel like acknowledging tough emotions will send you on a downward spiral. In reality, it’s the opposite. If we don’t acknowledge what we’re going through, we’re less likely to find solutions and more likely to act out without even realizing. At work, it’s especially important to notice our feelings, so that we can find ways to handle them.”

For those managing a coworker’s emotions or their own, Supportiv’s Work resources ( provide actionable steps to gently minimize emotional fallout in the workplace. Topics in the collection include:
