Behavioral Health Support in the Workplace

Presented by the Chicagoland Chamber Healthcare Council

Although there is no simple solution for employers to identify mental and behavioral health issues among employees, employers can mitigate workplace crises by establishing a comprehensive prevention and response strategy to effectively support employees in need. Often, individuals that exhibit mental and behavioral health issues in the workplace will go unnoticed out of fear or shame caused by stigmas and perceived consequences. An organization’s preparedness can therefore make a difference when it comes to shaping workplace culture, breaking down stigmas, and providing the necessary support functions for individuals that need focused attention.

In recognition of World Mental Health Day, the Chicagoland Chamber’s featured healthcare executive panel will discuss how employers can help provide critical behavioral health access and create solutions to meet the needs of at-risk employees.
