Event Description

Overview: Illnesses can have a huge impact on a workforce. For example, carpel tunnel syndrome can force accommodations for an employee or even force significant amounts of time off. This is clearly recognized in physical and well-understood illnesses and conditions.

It is also understood that sometimes an illness will strike a person through no fault of his or her own - such as cancer - forcing the person to alter his or her work life significantly. People suffering from these conditions tend to be treated with compassion at work.

This understanding and compassion is often not extended to those with illnesses of the brain - mental illnesses - even though these illnesses are, indeed, physical and need to be treated like any other illness. This lack of understanding creates stigma around those with a mental illness and this stigma is part of the problem.

Historically, people have thought that those with mental illness, especially an illness like bipolar disorder or severe depression, don't work. We now know this isn't true. We now know that every mental illness from anxiety disorders to personality disorders to schizophrenia are present in the workplace. We also know that the impact of these illnesses is huge.

This is seen not only in lost workdays, revenue and productivity but also in employee quality of life. Additionally, the stress of the workplace can be a mental health concern in and of itself and it can make mental illnesses worse.

That's where this webinar comes it. It's important to understand the issues surrounding mental illness in the workplace. It's critical to thoroughly understand the scope of the problem so that solutions can match. This webinar focuses on defining the issues around mental health in the workplace, spotting possible problems and finding solutions to these problems. Tools and techniques are given to allow for conversations around mental health and for creating an environment in which tolerance and acceptance flourish.
