“Everybody has mental health and every employer has an opportunity to invest in their employees’ well-being by creating a psychologically safe workplace. Challenging stereotypes, educating our workforces, and building communities that supports each other is the first step in removing barriers that otherwise limit our employees’ access to mental health resources.”
“As a result of the pandemic, the Mental Health of our employees and their families has become its own crisis. It’s our job as employers to help support them through it. Now more than ever, we need to ensure we have our finger on the pulse of the mental health of our employees and their families and look for creative ways to meet employees and families where they’re at.”
