Mental health is just as important as physical health, yet it is often overlooked in the workplace. According to the National Institute for Mental Health, one in five American adults suffers from a mental illness. That means your company is likely to have employees who are dealing with mental health issues, whether they are open about it or not.
A mental health strategy is important for two reasons. First, it shows that your company cares about its employees and their well-being. Second, it can help reduce the stigma around mental health issues.
There are many ways to build a mental health strategy for your company. One approach is to provide employees with access to mental health services. This could include on-site counseling or referrals to local therapists.
