Agenda for Employees in Crisis:

  • Understanding the need. Compelling ethical, legal and financial reasons make the case for rapid and comprehensive attention to mental health issues in the workplace.
  • Recognizing mental health issues. Knowing the signs and symptoms of the most common mental health issues enables proactive recommendations for care and can avoid or reduce some of the negative impacts of late care or non-treatment.
  • Teaching managers to help. The impact and rationale for making attention to mental health more than just “an HR issue” is explained. How to do it well is also presented.
  • Achieving parity in health care benefits. True parity of mental health with other health care benefits is sometimes neglected. We’ll address the potential dangers of such an oversight.
  • Obstacles to overcome. The four common obstacles to the use of your mental health care plan will be presented, as will solutions for overcoming these obstacles.
  • Creating a culture of mental health. Beyond the external systems of care for mental health issues, we’ll discuss research-based proactive solutions that can immediately be implemented to create a culture that promotes mental health.
