Creating an Engaged, Productive, Mentally Healthy Workforce

Thursday 3:15 – 4:15 PM

Session Description

Mental health issues are often misunderstood and stigmatized and are growing at a faster rate than any other kind of disability in today’s workplace. Addressing signs of mental health issues can be a challenge for people leaders who are often not prepared or trained to deal with the behaviors and challenges presented by employees experiencing a mental health issue. Empower yourself with the tools to address mental health issues in the workplace. Build a shared understanding of mental health and learn skills for leaders, managers, and teams to create a trusting and inclusive culture for mental health at work.
