Talking About Mental Health in the Workplace

All Day

1 in 5 adults in the United States experiences a mental health concern every single year. While emotional distress is not always a sign of mental illness, it can still take a major toll on employee wellbeing – not to mention productivity. In the end, everyone suffers when emotional distress and mental illness are left unaddressed in the workplace. Fortunately, employees and organizations can take steps to create a supportive environment, or what is often referred to as a psychologically healthy workplace. Taking these basic steps not only helps employees in distress and connects them to care – it increases employee resilience and engagement, as well as productivity.
