Mental Health Awareness is observed every year in May, with the overall objective of raising awareness and destigmatizing mental health issues. Mental health refers to our emotional and social well-being and impacts how we think, feel, and behave. It plays a role in connecting with others, making decisions, handling stress, and many other aspects of daily life. Mental health is an important component of overall health, and it deserves your attention just as much as your physical health does.
Today, and every Monday during the month of May, we will be pushing out communication on 5 common conditions that can affect an employee both in and out of the workplace. Our first topic is Managing Stress. Click here to check out this newsletter edition!
Mental Health Awareness is so important as we work to destigmatize issues that affect a portion of not just our community, but the human population at large. Nearly one in four Americans suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year. If this happens to include you, you are not alone. We support you, we appreciate you, and we honor you.
Additionally, we want to remind you that Hospice of the Piedmont offers a great benefit program to all Team Members – an Employee Assistance Program (EAP). VITAL WorkLife provides a comprehensive set of well-being resources designed to help you and your family face and overcome life’s challenges. All of their confidential resources are free to you and your family members. Information on how to access their website and resources can be found here.
