Webinar Recording: Managing Mental Health in the Workplace

DMEC Online EducationResources, Tools & Tactics Archives

Approximately one in five adults in the U.S. experience mental illness in a given year. Mental health is a subject talked about more openly than in the past, but stigma and silence often persists in the workplace, contributing to the fact that only one in three people with an illness ever seek help. As an employer, you’re in a powerful position to make a difference.

During this webinar, hear about tools available from the Partnership for Workplace Mental Health and learn more about the value of employee assistance programs (EAPs). EAPs are available to millions of employees in the U.S., yet awareness and utilization of these programs remains low (less than 5% usage). EAPs are often misunderstood and many services are available within these programs that could help to address mental health at the workplace.
