Empowering Your Team in Adversity, Stress, and Mental Health
Supporting adversity, stress, and mental health in the workplace has always been a challenge. The COVID-19 pandemic–along with the challenges associated with remote and hybrid work environments and workforce turnover–has increased this exponentially.
Organizations know mental health matters, but are being asked to balance these demands with the need to maintain–or increase–performance levels. With these challenges, how can an organization create equitable access to mental health care that meets the needs of every person?
In this webinar, leaders in psychiatry and trauma-informed care and stress join our Chief Medical Officer to answer your questions about adversity, stress, and mental health. They will discuss some of the medical evidence in this space as well as deliver actionable steps that you can use to change what you do in the workplace tomorrow.
During this webinar, you will learn how to:
- Build critical connections across your organization to improve mental health and wellbeing
- Foster peer support amongst teams and promote strategies for stress resilience
- Monitor and recognize stress and adversity in your organization and react across the stress continuum
- Create opportunities for a more inclusive and equitable workplace for individuals with mental health conditions
- Take a systematic approach to adversity, stress, and mental health while hardwiring processes and interventions that make an impact
