Overview: 
Mental health problems affect many employees in the workplace, and can result in many missed or unproductive work days. Employees tend to hide these disorders at work. As a result, mental health disorders often go unrecognized and untreated – not only damaging an individual's health and career, but also reducing productivity at work and damaging reputations.

This session will provide an overview of the laws surrounding disability in the workplace, and will also provide guidance on how managers and supervisors might help co-workers addressing this issues.

Topics will also include:

• How best to create a culture that protects the rights of employees and promotes, supports, and improves the mental health of employees and at the same time meets the company’s overall organization financial and management goals;

• Understanding key mental health issues – (e.g., depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, addictions) and how an individual can still be a valued and productive employee;

• How to assess the situation, find information, and get help or support for employees with mental health issues;

• How to support employees, management and co-workers;

• What should and should not be said/done; and 

• Identifying and understand reasonable accommodations required by law; Family and Medical Leave Act and ADA Leave obligations.

Tuition:
   • First attendee at $49
   • Second & subsequent attendees at $39 per person.
