In Honor of Mental Health Awareness Month:

Prioritizing Mental Wellness in the Workplace

Now more than ever, companies are prioritizing mental health and wellbeing. Creating a workplace culture that supports all employees is a good business practice, especially given the unprecedented challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Join us to find out how to “bring your A game” to cultivating a culture of resilience and wellness throughout your organization. You will learn successful approaches to wellness and proven business practices that replace the silence and stigma associated with mental health with acceptance and compassion. We will discuss resources from the Mental Health Toolkit that highlight the four “A’s” of a mental health-friendly workplace: awareness, accommodations, assistance, and access.
