Join us for our VIRTUAL August lunch meeting!
One in five Americans experiences a mental illness every year (47.6 million people). Another 8.4 million people in the U.S. provide care to an adult with a mental or emotional health issue. This has a $1.93 billion impact to our economy annually in lost productivity. HR Professionals are on the front lines of this health crisis in workplaces around the country. This presentation explores the most common mental health conditions, how they may manifest in the workplace, and how to help employees and supervisors during this difficult time. Learn how to be a resource for your organization.
Key learning objectives or key “takeaways” for the Presentation:
- Know the statistics and learn the basics about the most common mental illnesses
- Understand how mental illness impacts the workplace (absenteeism, lost productivity, culture, and health costs)
- Become aware of resources and best practices to help employees
