The Worksite Mental Health Crisis Is Real. Here’s What To Do About It.
DEIB Business Solutions Summit
Workplace stressors that create mental health crises are a pervasive problem, costing 1 trillion dollars globally in productivity loss each year. Yet, mental health is still a taboo topic, often thought of as a personal problem that individuals are responsible for addressing on their own. The workplace of the future sees itself as a partner with employees to address their mental health needs. In this talk, Deryk Van Brunt, DrPH, CEO of CredibleMind and Clinical Professor at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health, will explain how companies can improve health equity among their employees and continue to attract and retain talent, while still protecting their bottom line.
