A Mentally Healthy Workplace: What Leaders Need to Know and Do

Workplace leaders recognize the impact that mental health issues can have on productivity. But they may not know the best way to access employee assistance programs (EAPs) and other mental health benefits.

We recently stumbled upon a very valuable article via United HealthCare and thought you would gain tremendous value from it. But first, let’s define what EAPs actually are, and their importance to nearly any business.

Employee Assistance Program Defined:  The Employee Assistance Program or EAP is a workplace-sponsored initiative designed to provide confidential and professional support to employees facing various personal or work-related challenges. EAPs aim to enhance employee well-being and overall performance by offering a range of services  –  like counseling, therapy, financial advice, or legal assistance.

EAPs also offer other important resources for managing issues such as stress, mental health concerns, substance abuse, family conflicts, and much more.  A key aspect of the EAP program is to ensure that employees feel comfortable seeking help without fear of negative repercussions at work.

By offering these resources, employers not only demonstrate their commitment to their employees’ well-being, they also foster a healthier, more engaged and productive workforce.

That said, we highly recommend you click and download this important article, filled with informative insights:
