Elevating mental health at work
To create a culture of individual and collective well-being so that all may be happier, more successful, and more fulfilled at work.
Designed for adult audiences in a workplace setting, this program encourages individuals, teams, and leaders to be intentional about their approach to emotional wellness. Stigma, prolonged stress, disengagement, and worries can have a negative impact on employee morale, performance, and teamwork.
A Gallup poll found one in every four U.S. workers rate their mental health as fair or poor resulting in unplanned missed workdays. The impact of emotional health has a direct connection to a company’s productivity and outcomes, costing $47.6 billion in unplanned absences from work each year. (Agrawal, B. D. W. a. S. (2022, December 13). The economic cost of poor employee mental health. Gallup.com.)

“Jordan was outstanding! The immediate standing ovation says it all! He was able to openly speak on a topic that many see as taboo. We often forget that depression and suicide can impact anyone at any time and any place.”
— Janet McBride-Roy, Case Management Supervisor
Mental health is a continuum and employees who are struggling cannot leave those challenges at the door without subsequent impact on their performance. In an average week in the U.S five million people miss work due to stress and an estimated four million work days are lost due to depression. Stigmatizing attitudes about mental health and their role in the workplace often lead to poor performance, absence, difficulty with retention, and staff feeling disconnected from their work and colleagues. This can be interrupted and shifted through intentional focus on mental health and well-being. By prioritizing mental wellness, employers often see improvements in: productivity, attendance, employee health, reduced health care costs, ability to attract and retain talent, morale, relationships among co-workers, and reduced stress levels. As leaders in ending stigma and creating compassionate environments, Minding Your Mind supports your workplace with foundational mental health programming.
