As a society, we are more aware of the importance of mental health and well-being than ever before. Mental illness affects millions of Americans each year, and that’s never been more true than during the pandemic. Workplaces have unique access to, and influence in, the lives of their employees, therefore; supportive workplaces who break the stigma of mental illness can make a significant difference in the lives of those who experience it.
In this session, the following objectives will be covered:
Warning signs that there may be something going on
Discuss ways to initiate conversations about work performance and mental illness, without overstepping
Describe how to assess safety (i.e. suicidal intent) with a simple tool, and how to connect people to help
