Webinar - Why Are We Still Whispering About Mental Health?

Chances are, someone in your office is dealing with some form of mental illness right now. And even though nearly 20% of adults in the U.S. have a diagnosed mental health disorder, it's typically not discussed openly inside or outside of the workplace. The stigma long-associated with mental illness can prevent people from seeking proper treatment and lead to "self-medicating" with alcohol or other substances.

Brianne Lott, MRC, CRC, Hiring & Engagement Consultant from Disability Solutions @Ability Beyond, will discuss mental illness and alcoholism in the workplace in this month's webinar titled, Why Are We Still Whispering About Mental Health?

As an employer, recognizing the signs of common mental health issues and providing reasonable accommodations for these employees can help with retention as well as attraction of top talent by creating a more inclusive workforce. This webinar will cover:

  • Common mental health and substance abuse diagnoses
  • How to recognize and best respond to symptoms
  • Reasonable accommodations and how to provide them

Hosts:


Brianne Lott
Hiring & Engagement Consultant,
Disability Solutions


Tracy Cole
Marketing Manager,
America's Job Exchange
