The Puzzle of Poor Workplace Mental Health

The Puzzle of Poor Workplace Mental Health

Poor mental health in the workplace is widespread. It is a leading cause of disability, low productivity, and a significant obstacle to organizational performance.

Organizations over the last year have significantly increased their investments in supports such as EAPs, paramedical benefits and wellness programs.

Yet, half a million Canadians miss work each week because of mental health issues.

Have you considered taking a closer look at your workplace mental health strategy?

The e-book outlines key problems that undermine many current workplace mental health strategies, and it offers valuable insights and concrete steps employers can take to improve their mental health strategies.

This free resource outlines the questions you need to ask yourself to gauge whether your current strategy is delivering the ROI that you had hoped for.  (ie. reduced absenteeism, short-term and long-term disability related to mental health.)

How We Help

Starts With Me works with executive and HR leaders who believe the well-being of their colleagues is good for business. We help them develop custom strategies to promote the mental health of their employees, which ultimately leads to a rise in the quality and effectiveness of their company’s services.

Too often, leaders think:

  • They need a big budget to get going or that they lack the human resources to implement a plan
  • They can solve it through a-synchronous online training
  • Education and awareness are enough to impact behaviour
  • This responsibility falls outside their domain, so they don’t know the best course of action, and then fail to take action.

We’d love to support your organization to:

  • Attract retain, and nurture top talent
  • Reduce absenteeism and increase the effectiveness of your HR/people leaders
  • Create an engaged, resilient, purpose driven and compassionate organization

If you are interested in speaking with us about how you can improve your workplace mental health strategy, contact us to set up a free consultation.

We hope you enjoy the e-book and we look forward to working with you!
