Supporting Employees With Mental Health Issues

Learn what you as an employer can do to assist a struggling employee and champion solutions and reasonable accommodations.

Today's work environment is very different than in the past. There are many more stressors especially with our current work environment, whether it is a pandemic, downsizing or general pressure of balancing work and life. When an employee is diagnosed with a serious illness and then returns to work, the employee may not be welcomed back by co-workers. They may notice the rumor mill, the stares, the snickering, etc. When employees are diagnosed with mental illness it can lead them to a disheartening experience at work. If this employee leaves or is terminated, it is ultimately the employer who misses out on the value of a talent. The employer has lost countless of hours of productivity from the dram that its lack of support caused. Learn how to recognize mental illness and mental distress from a manager/supervisor perspective. While this information won't train you to diagnose mental illness, it will help you understand what you as an employer can do to assist a struggling employee and champion solutions and reasonable accommodations.
