Session description:

Mental health is an essential component to achieving one’s overall health.  Being able to identify and support an individual who may be experiencing a mental health issue is important, not only for the individual who is experiencing a mental health issue, but also as an employer.  Integrating mental health into your business health plan is essential to create a healthy work environment, but also to decrease the overall cost of health care.


Learn about:

1) the healthcare crisis, including post-pandemic,

2) how to identify an individual who may be experiencing a mental health issue, and

3) discuss options to support individuals struggling with a mental health issue.
