Supporting Employees With Mental Health Issues

February 1

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 from the past. There are many more stressors with our current work environment, whether it is a pandemic, downsizing, or overall 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 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 hours of productivity from the drama 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.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to identify signs from employees who suffer from mental health issues.
  • You will be able to explain more about employee’s mental health issues and gain listening skills when they are speaking of it.
  • You will be able to discuss how to implement reasonable accommodations with work schedules and job duties if needed to ensure productivity is still being met with high standards.
  • You will be able to recognize from a manager/supervisor standpoint how to be a champion of employees suffering from mental health issues.
