Description

One in five people have a mental health diagnosis. And those without a diagnosis are struggling, too. Many employees report that workplace stress impacts their mental health.

What is the solution? Creating a caring culture that supports mental health in the workplace. Encouraging employee mental health helps organizations, too, with lower costs and better productivity.

In this self-paced online micro-course, you will learn how employee mental illness impacts the workplace and how to create a caring culture that supports wellness for all employees. Whether you are a counselor providing direct services, a supervisor, or an employee in any organization, you can improve your workplace culture to support mental health.

Faculty Bio

Curriculum

  • Recognize the ways in which mental illness affects employees and workplaces

    Mental illness in the workplace impacts employees through stigma, lack of resources, and caregiving burdens. Workplaces experience absenteeism, lowered productivity, and increased costs.

  • Identify best practices for a caring culture

    You can change the organization’s caring culture. Best practices include a caring environment free of stigma, ideal work-life balance, supportive resources, and jobs that motivate employees.

  • Assess your organization’s caring culture

    Methods to assess your organizational culture include observation, surveys, interviews, focus groups, vendor data, and organizational metrics. Find an approach that works for you.

  • Design a path to a caring culture

    A comprehensive top-down approach to culture change works best. But that’s not the only way to make a difference. Consider options that fit your situation, such as a priority focus or grassroots activism.

  • Create an action plan

    Understand how your culture needs to change and the best approach for your situation. Set goals, determine your communication strategies, and decide on an evaluation plan.
