    Focus on Mental Health Bolsters Workplace Wellness

    Brought to you by our meeting sponsors,


    Many employers are taking a more holistic approach to employee wellbeing. A key component is recognizing the diverse needs within your population. However, many times mental health is left out of the equation. Although 1 in 5 adults in the United States are coping with a mental health issue, adapting your company culture and wellness programs to meet this broad spectrum of needs presents a significant challenge. This session will provide strategies to create an inclusive culture, reduce stigma, and focused approaches for meeting the mental health needs of your employees.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Participants will have a greater understanding of mental health issues in the workplace
    • Participants will be able to identify steps for nurturing inclusiveness and engagement in the workplace.
    • Participants will learn strategies to manage common challenges including stigma, organizational and/or individual resistance.
