WORKPLACE MENTAL HEALTH
TRAINING YOUR EMPLOYEES NEED
Declining mental health and the stigma of mental illness pose an expensive problem that hurts employees and undermines company culture.
Our innovative training programs provide employees, managers, HR personnel and leadership with the skills, knowledge and tools needed to better respond to these complex workplace challenges.
It All Starts With Training
Just like we need training to learn anything new, improving workplace mental health is a skill that needs to be taught and developed within an organization.
Awareness has brought attention to declining mental health in the workplace, but it is not enough. Companies need to take ACTION and provide their employees, managers, HR and leadership with the proper training to allow them to succeed in improving workplace mental health.
Once your workforce receives effective workplace mental health training, all other employee services – such as employee assistance programs, benefits and wellness initiatives – are far more likely to be utilized. Training will also help you build the right internal strategies to improve your response to mental illness, and ultimately eliminate stigma from your workplace.

DECLINING WORKPLACE MENTAL HEALTH
NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED
The prevalence of mental illness and the general decline in workplace mental health were already major challenges facing employers prior to the Covid-19 pandemic. In truth, our current reality poses a greater challenge to the workplace than most realize, resulting in lost productivity due to absenteeism, presenteeism, turnover and more. And all of these challenges are made worse by stigma.
Despite significant gains in awareness in recent years, mental health challenges as well as mental illnesses like clinical depression or anxiety disorder are still treated far differently than physical illnesses. This is caused by stigma and fear of discrimination, which results in confusion, isolation and lack of support. Consequently, far too many people are suffering in silence, avoiding treatment and trying to simply “soldier on.”
Now, more than ever, workplace mental health needs to be addressed. There is reason for optimism, however, because while mental illness can be treated, stigma can be cured.
