Wellbeing in the Workplace

Perspectives on Behavioral Health

MMA and the Earl E. Bakken Center for Spirituality & Healing partnered to bring together dialogue and expertise about the mental health concerns impacting the modern workplace. This panel presentation featured a collection of diverse industry experiences  to highlight the importance of behavioral health as a component of total worker wellness. This topic has become increasingly important to employers who acknowledge that the days of a separate work life and home life are behind us.

Topics include:

  • Clinical studies and research
  • Real world implementation and results
  • Employee- and employer-driven strategies for tackling common issues like stress reduction and conflict resolution
  • Mindfulness: What is it and what it can do for you
