Leverage resources

Connect employees to mental health resources that are available at your workplace and in the community.

Employers

Mental health resources already exist through benefit plans, EAPs, and resources in the community.

Review and evaluate benefit plan design

Improve access to mental health and substance use disorder care

Offer QPR, Suicide Prevention Training for key individuals

Review employee utilization of care

Employees

When employers regularly share mental health resources, decrease stigma, and provide a caring culture, employees can thrive.

Encourage employees to take a Mental Health First Aid course in their community or offer the course at the workplace. Classes on suicide awareness are also available.

Communication is key to make sure employees have knowledge of all the resources available. Make sure that front-line managers and supervisors are educated on the resources available and communicate these resources and programs to employees. 

Offer time during the workday for employees to attend seminars, trainings, and webinars. Post flyers on mental health in areas where employees may congregate such as the break room and time clocks. Provide resources such as the EAP phone number in a form that employees can take with them such as magnets, pens, and wallet cards. Provide all mental health resources in one easy to read flyer and make it available throughout.
