Mental Health in the Workplace
Managing mental health on the job is challenging for most people. There’s a myriad of reasons why: stigma, unsupportive managers or coworkers, lack of resources, or lack of knowledge about the signs of mental distress, to name just a few things. Combined, these factors can limit an employee’s capacity to thrive in the workplace, practice help seeking behaviors, and exercise self-care when needed.
This noontime webinar provides a mini-training to help foster a workplace environment that is supportive of mental health. You will learn the definition of mental illness, US prevalence rates and statistics on mental health generally and in the workplace, and how mental distress can show up in the workplace and impact employees. Walk away with a 5-step action plan for responding to a mental health crisis in the workplace and four proactive things that can be done to support mental health at work.
Note: This webinar is only available at the scheduled date and time.
