SAN FRANCISCO, CA Mind Share Partners, a leading national nonprofit for workplace mental health, today encouraged business leaders to begin investing in culture change when it comes to mental health by sharing their personal experiences. 76% of U.S. workers reported at least one symptom of a mental health condition in 2021, an increase of 17 percentage points in two years.  

“Coming out of the pandemic, we know that workplace mental health has become a top priority among employees,” said Kelly Greenwood, Founder & CEO of Mind Share Partners and frequent contributor to Harvard Business Review. “But it is still in the early days of becoming a management priority. We encourage C-Suite leaders across the country to use this month to prioritize — over the long term—the mental health of their employees. It’s the right thing to do for employees.”

Last year, in consultation with Mind Share Partners and others, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy released a framework highlighting the essential role workplaces play in promoting the health and well-being of workers and communities. 

On May 8, Mind Share Partners is launching a campaign–designed through a management lens–that includes a playbook for leaders and video testimonials featuring C-level executives discussing their own journeys with mental health. Leaders telling their own stories is one of the most effective ways to normalize mental health challenges as well as to create a culture of safety and support-seeking.

“Companies are just beginning to grapple with workplace mental health in earnest,” added Greenwood. “But the good news is we are seeing cracks in the old ways of thinking, with a growing number of senior leaders stepping up to break the traditional–and damaging–silence around mental health challenges.”
