Supporting Our Staff during Mental Health Month
1 in 5 individuals struggle with mental health. And yet, nearly 60% of adults with diagnosable mental health problems didn’t receive mental health services in the previous year. Stigma around mental health plays a significant role in people’s willingness to identify their struggles and seek treatment.
During this May’s Mental Health Month, Be Well at Work Employee Assistance is encouraging staff and faculty to break down stigma around mental health by engaging in the following:
- Talk openly about mental health
- Educate yourself and others
- Encourage equality between physical and mental health
- Be honest about treatment
We encourage you to consult with Employee Assistance about your own mental health needs, and if you’re a supervisor Employee Assistance is available for consultations regarding how to help employees on a path towards overall health.
