This New Year let’s resolve to prioritize employee emotional wellbeing!
Unprecedented numbers of citizens are struggling with mental health challenges.
This significant social issue is best addressed from multiple contexts, one of the most important being the work environment, where we devote so much of our time and energy.
In this important session, we will discuss how employers can create the conditions for optimal employee wellness, with a focus on supporting those who are struggling with their mental health.
Through this session, participants will:
- Understand the continuum of mental health challenges, from transient emotional distress to a chronic, diagnosed condition
- Recognize how common mental health conditions manifest in the workplace
- Identify and safely de-escalate a mental health crisis
- Have empathic, supportive conversations with employees about their mental wellness
Our Guest Speaker will be Michele Klimczak LMSW
Assistant Vice President of Training and Grant Management
