Mental Health in the Workplace

May 26, 2021

Living through 2020 was tough and addressing employee mental health challenges was a key priority for employee relations and HR leaders. As we move from pandemic to recovery, managing mental health in new and creative ways remains a top area of focus, whether providing new benefits or getting creative through community and connection. The effect of mental health on workers—and the workplace—is staggering. Just consider the statistics: 1 in 5 US adults experience mental illness each year.

You'll also identify how to encourage, support, and maintain a culture of mental health and wellbeing, and learn specific actions you can take to increase mental health and wellbeing in your organization. With the help of our expert panel we will discuss ways in which organizations and businesses can address this important topic respectfully and responsibly.

  • Creating and Sustaining a Mentally Healthy Workplace Culture
  • Post Traumatic Growth as well as Organizational Resilience
