In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, supporting employees’ mental health and emotional well-being has become an increasingly important issue for employers. EARN’s Mental Health Toolkit: Resources for Fostering a Mentally Healthy Workplace can help. The toolkit is a gateway to background, tools, and resources that can help employers learn more about mental health issues and cultivate a welcoming and supportive work environment for employees who may be facing mental health issues. It also presents an easy-to-follow framework for fostering a mental health-friendly workplace, all built around the “4 A’s”: Awareness, Accommodations, Assistance and Access.
We encourage you to explore the toolkit and share information about it, including the U.S. Department of Labor’s animated “Quick Employment Tip” about the toolkit, on social media!
