BE AN ALLY
Company leaders are the catalyst for culture change.
We work with C-level and senior leaders to share their stories, express support for their colleagues with mental health conditions, and provide resources.
Every year, mental health conditions affect 20% of your workforce. Those employees are likely to “cover” their condition, which negatively affects their sense of personal opportunity and commitment to an organization. Depression alone translates to over $5,000 in lost productivity per working person per year--for a 50 person company, that’s $250K annually.
Mental health conditions are pervasive, often invisible...
Thankfully, treatment for mental health is prevalent and effective--your job as an employer is to create a culture of trust so that employees can get support without fear of stigma or professional repercussions. Creating that trust starts with the leadership, the culture setters in any organization.
Share your story authentically.
We all have a friend, a teammate, or a family member who has dealt with a mental health condition. Sharing your experience--whether your personal story or yours as an ally--opens up doors for your employees to feel understood and supported. If you’ve managed a mental health condition yourself, you have the opportunity to be a powerful role model to your employees, especially those who are struggling and may not see a path to professional success.
Give your employees
somewhere to turn.
Most likely, employees who connect with your message will be hungry for more. That’s where Mind Share Partners comes in. Whether through a Q&A session, printed resources, or tailored peer groups, we can provide confidential, out-of-office resources for your employees that are looking for support.
