Webinar Recording: Breaking the Silence to Improve Behavioral Health Conditions

DMECResources, Tools & Tactics Archives


Jobs and their essential functions are typically designed for workers in optimal health, but not all workers show up that way. Millions of Americans struggle with mental health and substance use (alcohol or drug) conditions, but often don’t get the proper treatment or support they need. Since these behavioral health conditions are becoming increasingly common, employers benefit when they are prepared and knowledgeable about them. Knowledgeable employers are able to identify and discuss solutions with employees that lead to better work performance. Prepared employers can help their supervisors respond appropriately when needed; support employees to perform at their best; and maintain compliance with appropriate regulations.

Behavioral health conditions typically progress through five stages. This session described the predictable sequence of impacts and events that occur as symptoms emerge, and provided a map for supervisors whose employees experience behavioral health conditions.
