Are you prepared to support an employee facing a mental health challenge?
Today this capability is more critical than ever, and probably more simple to master than you imagine. In June of 2020 the CDC reported that 40% of adults in the US are struggling with a mental health or substance use disorder.
As a people leader, you strongly influence whether someone facing mental health challenges on your team will seek the support they need at work or suffer in silence. Are you equipped to make a positive difference today?
In this two-part series, we are going to help you say YES to these important questions and more.
Part 1 – March 10 – A Foundation of Understanding
- Can you recognize behaviors associated with depression, anxiety, or trauma?
- Do you know the verbal and physical cues that show someone they safely belong in your group?
- Do you understand what a team experiencing strong psychological safety looks like?
- Are you confident in your role as a leader when it comes to supporting an employee experiencing mental illness?
Part 2 – April 28th – Activating New Practices for Leaders
