Program Topic: Employees & Mental Health
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a profound change in the way work is structured and accomplished. These changes have negatively affected mental health for many and created new barriers for people already suffering from mental illness and substance use disorders. During the pandemic, about 4 in 10 adults in the U.S. have reported symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorder, a share that has been largely consistent, up from 1 in 10 adults who reported these symptoms from January to June 2019. Recent polls indicate that many adults are reporting specific negative impacts on their mental health and well-being, such as difficulty sleeping or eating, increases in alcohol consumption or substance use, and worsening chronic conditions due to worry and stress over the coronavirus. As the pandemic wears on, ongoing and necessary public health measures expose many people to experiencing situations linked to poor mental health outcomes, such as isolation and job loss.
This meeting's panel will address their views of the current state of the mental health problems of workers in our region, provide advice on how employers and HR professionals can provide help and support to their employees and specific community resources and organizations that can connect employees and their families with the help they need.
Registration Deadline: Thursday, October 28th
Panelists are mental health experts in our local community:
- Ken Dority, NAMI of SC (National Alliance on Mental Illness)
- Richard Jones MA, MBA, LCAS, CCS, CEAP, SAP, c-EMDR, youturn and Heritage Health Solutions
