A recent study by The Bowman Foundation for Workplace Equity and Mental Wellness revealed that while most workers admit they struggle with their mental health, disclosing mental health disorders to employers is still an issue.
These findings are not shocking, as most managers don't feel comfortable talking to their employees about their mental health due to the lack of resources and guidance on how to respond. The lack of engagement from their managers often leaves employees feeling unsupported and unheard, which can exasperate their mental health challenges.
There needs to be a shift in the culture around creating safe spaces for dialogues about mental health in the workplace. This LinkedIn Live provides participants with the tools and guidance for coaching managers through these challenging conversations by giving them the skills and confidence necessary for cultivating cultures of psychological safety and mental wellness.
