Mental health problems affect many employees and causes more days of work loss and work impairment than any other chronic health condition. Employees tend to hide these disorders at work. As a result, mental health disorders often go unrecognized and untreated — not only damaging an individual's health and career, but also reducing productivity at work and damaging reputations. As Managers and supervisors, we are often unsure of what are roles is in helping our co-workers. Employers can build a culture of well-being that promotes, supports, and improves the mental health of employees and their families. Approved for: 1.5 SHRM PDCs 1.5 HRCI General Credits.
