This webinar is 2 - 3:30 EST (Eastern Standard Time).

Employers are seeing more mental health issues in their workforce than ever before.  Each year 1 in 5 adults is stricken with a mental illness (National Institute of Mental health), making mental illness an everyday reality for many of your employees.  Yet, only 1 in 3 people seek help with their illness. The ADA, HIPPA, FMLA and most states’ human/civil rights department dictate how employers deal with employees with mental health problems.  Privacy laws create challenges for employers to determine how serious a situation is and whether an employee poses a danger (though those with a mental illness pose no more risk of violence than those without a mental illness).  Employee stress levels continue to rise as more and more employees spend more and more hours at work without an increase in pay or benefits.  Burnout and depression, particularly to millennials and millennial women are reported more than any other generation. This webinar will discuss how workplaces can and should play a significant role in minimizing their employees’ mental health risks.
