Investing in mental health and safety is critical to building solid workplaces, a strong workforce, and strong communities.

In order to promote mental health in the workplace, we must empower employees with the necessary tools to help them achieve mental health wellness success. Today's workforce is under unique pressure, and that pressure can lead to anxiety, feelings of instability, withdrawal, and the possible need for counseling and care. Difficulty accessing the life-saving mental health care they need or even not being aware of the mental health care options available to them can have detrimental consequences. Even employees with access to care suffer from stigma and a lack of options.
