At any given time, it is estimated that 1 in 6 employees are experiencing a mental illness. Mental Health for Employers is an important tool to help build inclusive, safe environments for employees experiencing this issue. Although there is a significant financial benefit to spending on mental health initiatives – recent estimates suggest an ROI of up to $15 for every $1 spent on such an initiative – as an employer, your concerns should extend well beyond the bottom line. You have a moral obligation to contribute positively to what is perhaps the most significant issue facing the typical workforce today. This course provides an overview for leaders and managers to increase their awareness of mental health, proficiently manage mental health conditions in the workplace, and help reduce the stigma associated with mental health conditions. It outlines ways to encourage helpful attitudes and actions towards mental health, improve mental health condition literacy, identify signs and symptoms of these conditions, and have an effective conversation with someone experiencing such a condition. It also outlines your rights and responsibilities when it comes to mental health in the workplace. Based in evidence, Mental Health for Employers uses graphics, videos, and animations in a highly interactive package to get a difficult message across effectively.
