One way employers can support employees’ mental health is to acknowledge that life is hard at times, but there’s always hope and help. When employees feel secure and have meaningful relationships at work, it can lead to open dialogue about where employees might need mental health support such as coping with burnout and stress.
Some companies find they can learn more about mental health challenges through surveys. While employees might not necessarily respond to direct questions about their personal mental health, they may be willing to share their key stressors in an anonymous survey.
Despite the growing recognition of mental health challenges, discussing mental health in the workplace can still seem taboo. Leaders can help destigmatize the topic by talking about it and being open to sharing their own struggles, which can help normalize mental health. And managers who have had mental training are better equipped to spot potential issues and respond appropriately to mental health concern.
Being able to access mental health care in a timely manager can be challenging for many employees. One study found that the average wait time for mental health treatment was more than 10 weeks. Virtual options and on-demand educational content can be effective resources to help bridge the gap between unqualified advice available online and in-person therapy sessions.
Employers can promote a culture where is OK to not be OK sometimes or to have an “off” day at work. Those that truly promote the importance of work-life balance can ease some of the pressure employees feel, which can contribute to mental health issues. Another meaningful way to help them is by offering a comprehensive mental wellness program with greater resources and support that can prevent issues and become a lifeline when needed.
