Several factors contribute to a psychologically healthy workplace. Click here to learn more.
Start the Conversation
Many employers have programs and resources that can help employees with mental illness. The challenge is getting people to access them. The ICU Program (Identify, Connect, Understand) was designed to decrease the stigma associated with the topic of mental health and foster a workplace culture that supports emotional health. The Partnership for Workplace Mental Health makes the ICU Program available at no cost to employers across all sectors, industries and sizes. The core component of this initiative is a five-minute video that teaches employees about emotional health and how to appropriately connect with distressed peers at the workplace who may need support.

Use Your EAP
If you work for a U.S.-based company, chances are you have access to an employee assistance program, or EAP. Free and confidential, EAPs serve as a resource for HR, managers and supervisors who may be dealing with employee performance issues stemming from mental health concerns. EAPs can provide management training, employee education and other resources to help raise awareness and reduce the stigma of seeking help.
