May is Mental Health Awareness Month! Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. currently experiencing mental illness, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. And some experts would say that reported number is low. If you are someone who struggles with mental health, you know how difficult it can be to cope with anxiety, depression or other behavioral health issues, and keep it from negatively impacting your work performance. Sometimes it is caring for someone in our family or household who suffers from a mental health disorder that affects our work life balance.
Since we know mental health concerns impact all types of people in every industry, Workplace Solutions partnered with LifeSpeak to provide an exclusive event on May 8th, 2019 to our clients and their family members. Leading experts will be available to personally answer questions about mental health in real time. Through LifeSpeak’s Ask the Expert platform, users can anonymously submit any mental health related question(s) they have and receive an answer throughout the 90 minute session.
What’s more, they will be able to see the questions submitted by other participants and their answers as well, making them part of a larger conversation about mental health. This collaborative, virtual group experience may help reduce the isolation that often surrounds people facing mental health challenges. We hope you will join us.
