Building a Workplace Mental Health and Wellness Program
Addressing employee mental health and well-being is increasingly a top priority for business leaders. Amid rising rates of overdoses and suicides nationwide, taking a proactive approach to caring for the body, the mind, and the spirit benefits everyone. Stress, burnout, addiction, and depression ultimately cost employers billions in productivity and health care related expenses. It’s time to take a human-centered approach to work culture and to prioritize thriving over surviving.
- Help to assemble a strong internal team that can prioritize employee mental health.
- Provide mental health training sessions tailored specifically to your organization. Trainings range from a 1-hour lunch-and-learn session to an 8-hour Mental Health First Aid training session (with certificate).
- Measure the effectiveness of the organization’s health insurance policy regarding access to mental health and addiction care and provide recommendations for improving coverage.
- Ensure your Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is comprehensive, adequate, and accessible to your employees.
