Grow your knowledge on the topic of workplace wellness as it relates to mental and behavioral health, provide a baseline from which to start or improve workplace wellness programs, and increase your own awareness of personal behavior in relation to stigma reduction.
Managers that we spoke with identified a lack in personal knowledge about mental and behavioral health, such as feeling uncertain on how to help their employees and co-workers. Learn about more non-traditional health and wellness activities as a means for lowering stress for yourself, and your employees.
Learn about proactive ways to support employees during situations that may keep them out of work for extended periods of time, and ensure that they are returning to work when ready, with they what they need to succeed.
Make sure that an employee leaves the organization with the support they need, or with an improvement of their own knowledge and attitudes toward mental and behavioral health as a means for reducing stigma overall.
