The Workplace Mental Health Seminar

OCTOBER 24, 2018 | BOSTON MARRIOTT LONG WHARF | BOSTON, MA

October 24, 2018

Workplace mental health is one of the most important issues facing organizations.  Yet few employers are taking action.  Deloitte’s latest Human Capital Trends Report states:

As the line between work and life blurs, providing a robust suite of well-being programs focused on physical, mental, financial, and spiritual health is becoming a corporate responsibility and a strategy to drive employee productivity, engagement, and retention. While organizations are investing heavily in this area, our research reveals there is often a significant gap between what companies are offering and what employees value and expect.”

Deloitte found that while 60% of employees thought that mental health counselling was important only 21% provided it.

And The Partnership for Workplace Mental Health (a program of the American Psychiatric Association Foundation) claim that Mental illness and substance abuse annually cost employers an estimated $80 to $100 billion in indirect costs alone.

It impacts productivity, absenteeism, health care costs, employee engagement and corporate culture. This program will provide an essential forum and vital information on this increasingly critical subject.

Preliminary topics include:

  • Building a compelling Business case for employers to invest in mental health interventions
  • Addressing the issue of stigma around mental health
  • How to prevent harassment and bullying and to create a psychologically safe
  • Creating a wellness culture – that encourages respect for everyone
  • Using the insights from positive psychology to create a happier more engaged workforce
  • PTSD – It’s not just first responders
  • Grief at work
  • Social isolation – is it the new smoking?
  • What managers need to know about mental health
  • The role of mental health in fostering work life balance
  • Addiction in the workplace
  • Effective return to work strategies
