Beyond Burnout: How Employers Can Make a Difference for Workers in Crisis
When an employee is suffering from a severe mental health crisis, research shows that they’re more likely to quit their job, go on disability leave, or harm themselves.
Over this past year, the number of people experiencing suicidal thoughts has more than doubled compared to 2018, with 11 percent of American workers and 11 percent of U.S. adults overall reporting thoughts of self-harm or suicide, according to surveys by Lyra Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
In this webinar, you’ll hear from experts Dr. Barabara Stanley, Director of the Suicide Prevention Training, Implementation, and Evaluation program at New York State Psychiatric Institute, and Dr. Smita Das, Medical Director of Psychiatry at Lyra Health, discusses the important role employers can play to help prevent self-harm and suicide and ensure members with severe, complex needs have access to the care they need early on.
During this event you’ll:
- Gain a deeper understanding of the mental health crisis today and how to support members with severe needs
- Hear best practices for people leaders, peers, and colleagues to help prevent suicide by recognizing when an employee is in distress and how to intervene
- Learn organizational strategies to destigmatize mental health resources to ensure your members are aware of the care available to them and feel comfortable getting help when they need it
