Mental Illness in the Workplace: The Hidden Disability

October 12, 2022

Laura L. Rubenstein

More than 50% of Americans will be diagnosed with a mental illness or disorder at some point in their lifetime.  These numbers have risen due to the stress from COVID, the economy, and other factors. While there is no single cause for mental illness, a number of factors can contribute to the risk including: trauma, a history of abuse; chronic medical conditions; use of alcohol or drugs; or feelings of loneliness or isolation.

How is an employer to navigate this? There are a myriad of workplace policies and federal, state and local laws available that may apply to your business and the particular situations you may encounter with your employees.  Hear from expert panelists who will discuss the topic of Fostering Good Mental Health and Wellness in the Workplace in a complimentary *in-person* presentation at ImpactHR, LLC in Columbia, Maryland. See this post for details and registration.

Join the discussion and gain knowledge and tools to communicate well and remain legally compliant.
