Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experience mental illness in a given year*. Mental health is a subject talked about more openly than in the past, but stigma and silence often persists in the workplace, contributing to the fact that only one in three people with an illness ever seek help**. As an employer or broker, you’re in a powerful position to make a difference.
Hear about tools available from the Partnership for Workplace Mental Health and learn more about the value of Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs). EAPs are available to millions of employees in the U.S., yet awareness and utilization of these programs remains low. EAPs are often misunderstood and many services are available within these programs that could help to address mental health at the workplace.
Offered in partnership with the Disability Management Employer Coalition (DMEC), through this webinar you’ll:
- Understand the business case for addressing mental health in the workplace.
- Receive a reminder on the basics of employer obligations under the ADA and learn how to identify and assess potential accommodations for mental health disabilities
- Learn the steps to implement an employee education campaign to increase awareness and encourage employees to access treatment, including the services provided by Employee Assistance Programs.
