There’s strong evidence that many organizations have moved ahead with well-being programs but are much more hesitant about developing their response to serious mental health issues. Ignoring this issue isn’t a viable option given World Health Organization statistics suggesting that as many as 1 in 3 people worldwide may suffer from mental health problems entailing medical intervention. There’s also evidence of mounting anxiety among millennials, suggesting the issue of mental health will only become more important in the future.

Join this webcast to gain insights into how to shift from focusing on well-being to focusing on serious mental health issues. Learn about how to manage and support employees with a predisposition to episodic mental illness, despite progress being held back by the continuing stigma around mental illness and the reluctance of individuals to disclose their condition.

Key Takeaways:

  • How to help line managers, leaders, and HR practitioners engage with the subject of mental health issues in the workforce
  • How to contribute to positive change and reduce the risk and potential cost of mental illness in the form of absenteeism, poor performance, and lost talent
  • How to identify the core principles, priorities, and desired outcomes that should inform the design and implementation of a corporate mental health policy
